Local DJ and musician Johnny Diamond dropped a rework this week, whose origins started a massive 37 years ago. We asked the big man to give us the beans on this remarkable slice of contemporary rock:
“…Yeah mate. The Track “I’ll Just Think (To Myself) was written in 1983 by myself and the bass guitarist of the local band Blue Party.
Originally recorded as a demo at the Chemist Studio in Boundary Lane, Saltney, a studio also used by Chester icons Action Transfers who I was a big fan of.
The original track was engineered by David Baynton-Powers who went on the be the drummer of James.
Having listened to the original 4 track recording on an old cassette tape I decided to re arrange and record the new version in my home studio.
The video was done on my iPhone and edited on my laptop….”
