…oh no, this is the road to hell
– Road to Hell (Chris Rea)
Now that I come to think about it, the lyrics of Chris Rea’s maudlin masterpiece are a fairly accurate description of an AST recording session at the best of times.
And I’m underneath the streetlights, but the light of joy I know
Scared beyond belief way down in the shadows
But recording of Episode 8 was hellish in ways that went way beyond the usual Producer Dan grumbling…
And the perverted fear of violence chokes the smile on every face
Common sense is ringing out the bells
