Beki: ‘If I Knew What I Know Now’ was a pretty easy birth – Paul came up with a riff for a verse and we plugged in an SM58 microphone and I sang over the verse and then carried on singing the first chorus that came into my head – he worked out which chords fitted beneath my vocal melody and voila- a new song.

Fast forward to 2023 and renowned mix engineer Sara Carter asked if she could remix the song for ‘Produce Like A Pro’ – a prestigious on line sound engineering academy where world class mixers offer advice and training. As some of you will know, we are completely DIY and do everything ourselves, which includes guitarist Paul recording and mixing our songs at home. Beki: We wrote ‘Done Before’ (previously titled ‘Done’ and ‘Toxic Personalities’) while working on what was to become the album ‘Punk Rock Radio’. The song was inspired by the treatment  a friend of mine received during the process of being evicted from his flat. We came across the live recordings of ‘Coward’ and ‘Latex Love’ from the Lyceum on Ebay – some guy was selling bootlegs and when we contacted him he offered to send us a CD.

We had the songs cleaned up and mastered so that the sound is clearer but none of the energy or passion has been lost.
