Matt turned up with a list of two album's worth of songs (OK, three if you're happy with only 12-14 songs instead of 20 on each disc) and basically we started at the top and worked down. Got about five or so done - at least the bare bones - before Matt had to head back to Auckland.
Anyway, I have a big list of things to do, but at least some of them now relate to music!
And: given that there are something like 20 variants of "Hey Babies" and 4 or 5 "Doubtful Sounds" already on MySpace and Amplifier, we'll probably need a new name sooner or later.

Sin is where our Lady sat
Heaven is turned to hell;
Satan sits where our Lord held sway
Walsingam, oh, farewell!

and of course it breaks my heart every time I hear it.

So my ringtone is finally back to where it was a couple of years ago when I smashed my third Sony P800/900 (Ok I think it was 2 P800s and 1 P900).
And it doesn't look good
And I'm feeling like a block of wood
Take me away, I know not where
OK, well actually the tone is just four bars from the intro, but you get the idea.

Today (1 April) was actually his third session; other recordings were on 11 Feb and 11 March. He's recorded about an hour of stuff each time, generally bits and pieces for St Cuth's, but also some lovely original stuff like "Where to Run" and "How Long" which is just great.
I've also been doing some recording with Matt in Auckland not to any great effect - but this evening I also "remixed" a great U2-ish song of his called "sleep" but putting the pro-tools BOOM drum machine under it (because his version was done with Reason and I don't have Reason any more). But I think a "straighter" version will sounds better: this one is just an oddity.
