Once I had the bands parts all in place, I played the bass line into the computer and fired the midi out to my Roland SH 101 and Arp Axxe, both of which are slightly out of tune, to thicken out the sound.. I then played in Alex's top line melody for the middle 8 by hand, got it slightly wrong, but I liked the mistake and kept it, and then mixed it down and sent it to the label.
I learnt that there is usually an element in what you create that you can still work with even though if you are largely unsatisfied with what you have. It's just a case of refocusing your vision, being honest, and chucking away what you don't like and zoning in on what you do, and then not to give up.
This was also one of the first instances where I saw a band play part of a rework in their live set, it was hugely flattering." - Erol Alkan
