Ijo Pona is the Harrogate adventure blog written by a Funny Little Man. Andy is a freelance web designer in Harrogate and he is also a well-received sound artist and runs a mastering studio in Yorkshire. The Wire Magazine once described him as "... difficult to dislike." Still at my most enthusiastic and naive.
Funny Little Man – Harrogate
Yeah, cheers Scooby – when I next record a show with Guerrilla Dub System and Scooby I will remember to have slept before hand and not fall asleep mid-link, hahaha.
What happened was I had a bit of a bad night and I had not slept – so, when I sat down to record Roots Conversation I could hardly keep my eyes open. I was exhausted in every sense of the word.
Allan had to give the enclosed recording a miss – he was occupied because the recording was going ahead in the daytime to accommodate my hours. Allan leads a busy life and we did not want to force him to break his habits. It was just me and Scooby recording this …
By the end of it is was nodding off – as in, I actually did nod off. Mid-link! Scooby took it in his stride and a quick overdub and a cover up later and we did not have to worry about anything. When I nodded off during the recording, I was still speaking and I promised Scooby ‘real-life Sound Of Wonder vinyl pressings’ but we laughed about it and it was consigned to the dustbin.
And, this was done sober.
