Ook and the Elephant

Ook and the Elephant are a Bolton based band who recently visited Talent Pool to produce their first e.p. with our engineer Danny Liptrott.The band describe the sound they produce as coming from the battle of wills between a bass player who has an unhealthy fear of guitar pedals, a lead guitarist who has an unhealthy love of guitar pedals and a drummer who would happily use no more than a vase and his head for percussion, all mixed with some rather nice male/female harmonies.


It was an enjoyable session by all accounts, and certainly from the Talent Pool staff point of view, it was great to listen to such a variation of sounds coming from around the different live rooms in the studio. With the drums set up in the large live room upstairs, the other musicans set about making themselves comfortable in three of our other smaller studios, enabling athe band to create real live takes without sound bleeding into different tracks.
