Big Pink get creative
Electro duo tell 6 Music they want to record another LP18 September 2009 - The Big Pink have admitted they are "desperate" to get back in the studio to start working on album number two.
The London electro-duo, who only released their debut A Brief History Of Love this week, told 6 Music they are already getting itchy feet.
"It feels good," said one half of the duo, Robbie Furze. "I think both of us just want to get back into the studio and do the next record. It's kind of weird because once the album's out, it's such a long process before you get started on the next one."
"We've just been back in the studio to do a remix of (forthcoming single) Velvet and a cover of an Otis Reading track," added keyboard player Milo Cordell. "So we have already started getting creative again."
The pair, who picked up the Philip Hall Radar Award for best new act at the NME Awards earlier this year, also explained why they decided to cut early single Stop The World from their debut's final tracklisting.
"We're really going to step up the visuals and create an intense live atmosphere."

"We left it off the album because it never worked live," explained Furze. "We liked it when we first recorded it but little by little we started hating it and now we just can't bare to listen to it."
The duo are due to hit the road for a UK headline tour in October. Cordell told 6 Music they have already started planning their stage set, which is expected to involve plenty of audience participation.
"We're really going to step up the visuals and create something intense," he enthused.
"It's all going to be analogue, old vintage lights, I'm not into lasers or LED lighting. We want to make it really stark.
"We want to get the audience involved too," he continued. "We're planning on putting strobes in the crowd so when the songs kick in, everyone feels it."
