One end of the room had a very high ceiling, and that was used for the drums, while the rest was about eight foot high. "For us, it was very much a case of the wrong place at the wrong time," Mair says. He said, 'Sure'. I'm on another planet with you, with you .

Kellie, that was perfect...' and he just went, 'It's okay, I'll do it again.' Another Girl, Another Planet is an original novel by Len Beech (a pseudonym for Steve Bowkett) and Martin Day featuring the fictional archaeologist Bernice Summerfield. After they'd listened to the cassette, Alan Mair decided they would have to get hold of the 16-track, transfer it to 24-track and then see if they could develop things from there. A Birmingham native, Burns had landed a job as a tape-op at London's Morgan Studios in 1968, thanks to the efforts of former college classmate Andy Johns, who was then the chief engineer there. We were talking about a recording that had been made about six months earlier. It didn't jump out of the speakers in the same way. At that point, we were paying for the sessions ourselves, and in September 1977 we recorded 'Oh No', 'The Whole of the Law', 'Special View', 'Breaking Down' and 'Another Girl, Another Planet'.".

The Vodafone ad was out there and everyone kept asking him about the Only Ones. "From the start, I really took care of most of the aspects of recording," he says, "whether it was dealing with Peter's vocals, deciding on guitar parts or getting extra musicians to play things. The insurance company learned that I used to leave a key in an envelope at the local pub for engineers to use when I was away, and after three years of paying solicitors and barristers to deal with the case I ended up getting £5000 for £70,000-worth of equipment...". Released as a single from the Only Ones' impressive, eponymous 1978 debut album, 'Another Girl, Another Planet' disappeared without trace and quickly dragged the group's unrealised fortunes with it. "In terms of the drums, I had different mic techniques," Burns explains. Not that this turned out to be straightforward either. The point was, I now had a very clear bass drum and a very clear snare drum to do a really good mix. Long journeys wear me out.

With the two kits on separate tracks, the new kit was at the front insofar as the snare and the bass drum, while the crash cymbals and other bits and pieces were at an equal volume, but we certainly didn't pull the other kit back or submerge its ambience, as there was natural overspill from the bass and guitars recorded at Escape. In a moment of desperation I told the roadies, 'You're gonna have to go back to Escape and pick up the 16-track machine.' The whole thing was simple; two guitars, bass, drums and vocals. "I was always doing things like that," says Burns, who subsequently left the business for about 20 years, before returning to the studio with Bristol-based rock outfit JEBO, in 2004. Burns' first full engineering assignment was to record an Italian version of David Bowie's 'Space Oddity', and by 1971 he'd signed a freelance deal with Island Records to work at London's Basing Street (now Sarm West) Studios, while also taking care of other projects. Space travel's in my blood. It doesn't have gimmicks, it just has a great sound. On the first day it was kind of obvious that we were just talking and playing little bits of the song, but after that I gave John the nod, and when Peter started I spontaneously came in with the bass on the offbeat. "Obviously, the heads were aligned differently to those on Johnnie's machine, and no matter how much we fiddled about we couldn't get it to sound right. If he said, 'Can't I have a mic on there?'

I mean, there's nothing worse than doing a song and then turning to the engineer and saying, 'Did you get that?' "It was more or less complete, with maybe one or two lines of lyrics to fill in, and it also didn't have the long intro," Mair recalls. The six-month search for a bass player on the part of Perrett, Perry and Kellie was finally over.
