Pictured right - Charlie leading a 'good old ding-dong' at the 'old Joanna' with the girls, who had the following to say about the new album as well as working again with the legendary Subs singer...
Victoria (Pee Pee Ramona): Bass
We’re always looking at trying new things as a band and the idea of us doing something stripped back really appealed to us, we also used it as a way to write some more songs that would work well acoustically. The idea really started to materialise after playing an in-store for the release of our debut album. Later that year I also recorded bass for Charlie’s solo album ‘Little Black Crow’ which is acoustic based, that was really inspiring for me personally. Charlie has been so supportive and great to work with, it was amazing to have him feature on a couple of our tracks for this release.
Camille (Cammy Ramona): Drums
I really like how the songs work acoustically, it gives them a totally new dynamic. Especially with the re-written guitar and bass parts, even some of the harmony has changed from the original, which makes for a really interesting sound. Even though being a ‘drum kit’ drummer and not having much real experience with any other percussion instrument, it still made for a really enjoyable experience recording in this way, different but in a great way!
Lisa (Cloey Ramona): Vocals
We had done an acoustic show in Brighton at our vinyl launch and had enjoyed it as it is so different to what we normally do (make lots of noise). It really has to make you think about the songs and adjust them to work in that setting. We had a day booked in the studio to see how many we could put down. We managed more than we thought as we recorded the songs together live all in the same room which was fun. It kept us on our toes as there was no room for error! It is always great to have Charlie on board and we're always happy to have him join us in the studio. We like to give him free range to play what he likes on the harmonica over the tracks. There are 4 new tracks on the acoustic album that we haven’t recorded previously so that should be something new for people to hear too!
Maxine (Rohnny Ramona): Guitar
I adore acoustic guitar and love being faced with challenges like making different arrangements of songs or parts, it can often give a song a whole new dynamic. I think the songs sound great stripped back. Plus having Charlie involved is a pleasure, he's a genuine lovely man bursting with creativity.
