PLAY AND RECORD RECORDS

"My name is Stephen Evans and I am the bass player from the band Twisted Wheel. I have played in many bands before joining Twisted Wheel, most of which you will have probably never heard of.

I've always loved the process of writing and recording music, and during the last few years I have compiled quite a large collection of songs. The idea of ZX+ was to write and record songs under rules and guide lines, whether it be time restraints, conceptual ideas, or any other unusual restrictions that do not accompany the freedom involved with writing. I especially liked the songs which resulted from the idea of time restraints, with their unusual structures, and production techniques that were used to disguise mistakes and rushed recordings. The combination of these factors made for a very interesting sound, one entirely different to the songs I would usually write. After the idea of writing songs with rules got a bit boring, I decided to try and write some songs that had similar structures and production techniques to those written under time constraints, without the idea of time constraints preventing me from improving them. I recorded about 30 songs with this idea in mind, and picked the best ones for this album.

I love vinyl, and I still consider it the best way to listen to music. Holding the sleeve of the record, marvelling at it's artwork, reading the notes, watching the record spin - these are all physical aspects of listening to music that are being lost through the way in which digital has taken over the listening experience. This album is only available on vinyl, I hope you enjoy it."
