John Blease played drums and did a few percussion loops. Ben Trigg played some cello. I did the rest - synths, drum programming etc. Stay tuned for mixes/release.
After seeing this I basically invited myself to join them around May 2009. I used to do live sampling with [TTT's] Tom Rogerson, it's actually how we started off - in a group with Cake too. The two Toms also did a really interesting duo record last year Cable Street Shorts [recorded at Urchin Studios].
MA is the one band I'm in where I don't play guitar. I did some synth stuff on the record, but otherwise it’s just live sampling/processing of feeds from Cake, Ross and Dave mostly using Ableton Live.

We were delighted when we turned up at Barden's Boudoir on Feb 5th to find Beatcast setting up to film and multitrack record the whole gig as we’d been talking about doing live recordings. I was still jet-lagged from being in
Finished EP3 on Jan 4th. Like EP2 it was made quickly [recorded Dec 19-20 in Urchin Studios, 21-23, 27-29 at mine, and mixed at Urchin 30-31 + Jan 2 with out friend Dan Cox, then mastered on 4th]. Lots of the ideas had been in place since August/September, but we didn't record until December mostly through hesitating about new ideas since we were aiming for something different, but reassuringly it got some good feedback when released in April [on Blood and Biscuits]:
