The bass does get more adventurous towards the end... Martin excelled himself with the ambience & atmospheric noises on this one. This is another one I had to give added structure to in order to play live as The Light. Also added more bass of course!
Inspiration for I Remember Nothing was probably The End by The Doors. Difficult to pull off live because Ian found it tough to sing. It came from a simple jam, then from Ian’s trusty bag of lyrics. Strange way to end - almost sounds like a nightmare.
Martin used any sound if he liked it. It sounds like glass smashing but I have a vivid memory of it being him smashing cups in the studio kitchen. The bass is distorted due to driving my Marshall 100w amp very hard. Simple song - just octaves of E.
e went back towards Manchester Piccadilly station and Paul did the interview in The Brunswick ... It was a great interview. He rang the features Editor on Monday to say they had to go on the cover. This is the shitshow they made of it
I REMEMBER NOTHING This song is wild! Total comedown after Interzone, but that contrast makes for a perfect ending. Nice Mellotron from Barney, with a very spiky guitar line. Effected snare again comes via the echo plate. Almost like singing a poem.
That’s me singing lead. Ian was very generous & always encouraged us to sing too. He thought Interzone was too straight & wanted to add something different. We did an almost call & response vocal. His different lyrics weaving around the main vocal.
INTERZONE Another up tempo rocker, great drums! It had to be hard for Steve to record each drum separately here. Probably the punkiest song on the record Martin dropped a lot of the other punky ones - The Drawback, Walked In Line.. but kept this one.
