The spine of the Oompa Loompa song was recorded at SAE East London, sometime late 2008 with Peter Z engineering.
The Drums, Bass and Guitar were recorded live, with lead vocals & Gideon’s incredible tenor swiftly following.
It wasn’t until August 2010 that David added his Baritone melodies & awesome dying pig sounds at the Premises Studios, London. Squier engineered this.
Susie & Pimi then thew on glorious harmonies in Squier’s bedroom, N16, London.
Finally, by January 2011 Squier got around to adding flute & piccolo; recording at his childhood home; The Grange near Bristol.
The whole mess was edited & arranged by Squier, then co-produced & mixed with Andy Ramsay at Press Play Studios, South London, October 2011.
Mastered at the Premises Studios, London, by Jason Howes in October 2011.
Yep. It took a really long time and was really hard.
