Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker graduated from engineers to producers when they remixed Radiohead’s Climbing Up The Walls. Simple Things was their full-length debut and went gold in Britain.
Jeremy Stacey says:
“Henry and Sam, the two guys from Zero 7, used to work at RAK Studios as assistants and engineers. I used to do a lot of sessions there in the early ’90s, so I knew them. When they decided to do a project, they called me to come and play some drums just for an afternoon.”
“It was a very creative, enjoyable session - they told me what they wanted, but they left me to do my thing. We didn’t know it was going to turn into something huge.”
“I’ve been using my Tama Bubinga a lot over the past year and it’s been great. Before that I used this one ’60s Ludwig kit, like a Ringo kit. I bought the toms separately then I found a bass drum that was falling apart in Los Angeles for 25 bucks.”
