Spontaneous Project started with me going round for a jam at Musical Connections member Darshan Davies' flat in September...
He had some nice words written and i picked up his nylon stringed guitar and sang a tune to them..Luckily he had an ancient pocket-size Portastudio and a cheap mic which he held(no mic stand y'see) to record it...
It was great fun,so we carried on doing this till we'd got 18 songs together a coupla months later..
Then we spent a couple of afternoons adding a full sonic arsenal of chicken shaker,cheap keyboard,backing vox,old bongos,handclaps and more nylon string guitar till the tracks began to shine in glorious,resplendent lofi..Picked our favourites to make a mini album for friends and family and called it 'The Davies Ison Project'...
Amazingly a top record company executive from E.M.I happened to be walking past the window at the precise time we did our first playback.He invited himself in,saying excitedly it was 'Pure commercial gold' and 'the most astonishing thing i've heard in over a decade' and offered us a 6 figure deal on the spot....
We politely declined his kind offer tho,saying we were holding out for a better deal of total obscurity...
