Pete’s blog (Part 2) – On the Wire Re-release [April 2019]

Tenek_OTW2019_CoverArt_8x8_72dpiIn my last blog I wrote about the writing and recording process of the album. But that was just one part of all that was going on regarding Tenek in 2010 and also 2011 which proved to be a pivotal year for the band.

Did I call it the “Pale Imitation Mix” because I’d decided to do a remix inspired by the minimalist electro/industrial of Nine Inch Nail’s ‘Hesitation Marks’, or did I decide to do a minimalist electro/industrial remix because “Pale Imitation mix” was just way too good a play on the title for me to ignore?
