We where very inspired by electro clash and wanted to write synthpop inspired by the 80's, with attitude from EBM and other heavy dance music.
I came up with the base-line and we molded the song around it. The music came very easy and we had the foundations for the song before lunch that day (we started early).
But we still had no idea for lyrics. I just knew that I did'nt want to write songs about love and boy-meets-girl. There are allready to many love songs, and others does them better then us. We tried to come up with ideas while eating pizza. Finally we came up with the idea to write about stuff that bothered or annoyed us (wich is still how we come up with ideas for lyrics).
All sounds and programming was done in Propellerheads Reason wich I just had started to use. We mixed the music as good as we could within the program. None of us had been doing production before and we did'nt even grasp the concept of EQ. We just picked some good sounds and tried to get the levels right.
Then we saved the music as a file and imported it to Cubase where we recorded the vocals. A couple of takes later and we were ready with our very first song that same afternoon.
Alot has happened since that day and alot has changed about how we record and produce our music. But a few things remain; we still program ideas in Reason and we still don't write love songs.
