The New Adventures were a spin-off from the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. The point was, I now had a very clear bass drum and a very clear snare drum to do a really good mix. An equally credible second album, Even Serpents Shine, was released in 1979, but thereafter — despite Mair's own sobriety — drugs, despondency and disputes consumed the band during the recording of their third and final studio effort, the Colin Thurston-produced Baby's Got A Gun, and by the end of 1981 it was all over. "Another Girl, Another Planet" is the most successful song by the English rock band The Only Ones. Then John added a second guitar, a harmony guitar over the intro, and there's also a Hammond organ part that doesn't always jump out at everyone, played by Peter. The basic format of the song was all there — the chords, verses and chorus — and, as with all of Peter's material, we worked through it until everything fitted. It just happened to be on that take, and I probably put it on a separate track just in case it ended up being the actual master and this might screw it up. The kit would be in stereo with the bass drum separate. 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. Not that this turned out to be straightforward either. We haven't captured that magic.'

Original title: Another Girl, Another Planet… In my mind, there was no question: we were in line for a number one record, and had it been playlisted like everything else then I think it would have achieved that.

I kind of nodded at Kellie to make sure he wasn't just watching us without intending to come in on drums, thinking that we were running through it without doing a full take. Here's a brief run-down of the equipment at Escape: "I was very hands-on, so Robert Ash and I set up a mix session, the whole band was there, and I said, 'Because of the way it was recorded, I just can't get any separation between the bass drum and snare. The band completed a comeback UK tour in June 2007, and continued touring throughout 2008 and 2009. Generally, I also put a live mic up on a boom, right above everything, but invariably I wouldn't use it. There are actually some demo recordings of 'Planet', done at Man, no's, and when we got to Escape we didn't think, 'Right, let's get the tape ready, let's roll.' So Kellie came in and then John came in, and more or less that whole introductory guitar part was done straight off. So if you could actually take the '80s out of the way, the Only Ones might have survived.". 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...". He said, 'Sure'. I mean, there's nothing worse than doing a song and then turning to the engineer and saying, 'Did you get that?' Then about three-quarters of the way through, there was a little click of his sticks and he kind of lost his feel. Occasionally I've used the live mic on records, but generally I'd get rid of it in the mix because of all the spill from the guitars and so forth. I was looking at him like, 'I can't believe this,' but then he did a second take and it was absolutely bloody perfect; his own kit on top of his kit, not the tiniest bit of phasing, nothing. We were so innovative, so different. 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'.".

On 'Another Planet', the bass was recorded with a mic and DI — I probably used an AKG D20 — while for the guitars I used Neumann 87s or U67s.
