Here's the goss;

Written tonnes of songs
Written "a sort of theatre piece"
Remixed Paul Weller (Chris did it, Neil sung some vocals on it)
-Kind of a symphonic remix, in 3 movements. It lasts for 12 and a half minutes. (3 different versions all linked together and Neil sings on it) It's quite banging.

In lockdown Chris has written a lot of stuff, despite him and Neil not formalising a routine.
West End girls Lockdown Version vocals recorded on Neil's phone.

Less significant:
Neil has explored the countryside around his house, done a lot of walking, a lot of reading.
At start of lockdown got into Hollywood film noir from the 40s/early 50s. Likes seeing what life was like back then.
Neil came up with a tune for a song in his sleep, but later realised it was from Phantom Of The Opera so it was deleted.
Also, Neil said he’s done some programming. Is that not significant? I’m genuinely asking. 🤔

Give it was only on GarageBand, which is pretty rudimentary, probably not.
Woof.

To be honest I didn't get that bit. To me it sounded like Neil's saying he did programming for West End girls but clearly Chris is playing the music. You think he means he's creating instrumentals for other songs?
