This Toad Session is something a little different, in that instead of setting up a studio environment in the house, we actually just recorded the songs at a house gig. The gig was in fact also the band's first live appearance in four or five years. So the whole atmosphere of the session is massively different to the usual ones we record. The interview took place all at once before the gig, rather than in and around the songs like it usually does, and for the podcast I have just spliced bits of it into the podcast as and when it seemed suitable.
We also webcast this live, which was kind of fun. I am not sure how brilliant the image and sound were for everyone, but it was an extremely fun thing to do and something we'll be looking to do more of in the new year I hope.
