We arrived on a snowy Sunday morning on 5 February 2012 and nearly cancelled the session because of the heavy snow. We persevered and made our way to the village of Cookham near Maidenhead to have our first recording demos of two songs we had been working on for a few weeks, “Reminds Me” and “Bigger Man”. We had heard so much about Stu as he had produced for Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Jeff Beck and many more.

We had about 7 hours in the studio and spent about 6 hours on Bigger Man and managed to squeeze in Reminds Me in one take. Stuart has worked with Jimmy Page, Bill Wyman, Brian May, Jeff Beck and many more famous guitarists but thought that Angus was amazing and called him the one take wonder. We tried some harmonies on Bigger Man and that seemed to work. The whole day seemed to go very smoothly and we really got on well with Stu. He does have an amazing knack to make you feel at ease and that helps to get things moving smoothly.
