The Creative Principle The Creative Principle was My Soliloquy’s debut release [then, just called Soliloquy]. Recording began on November 3rd 2002 and continued for six weeks at various locations throughout the city of Derby, U.K. The whole demo was recorded and mixed on a Boss Digital 8 Track, and was a self produced affair. The drums were recorded at The Music Shed rehearsal studios. Andi Evans tracked his drums while the others played live in a separate room. Armed with a rough, un-edited drum recording, the kit was roughly mixed down to a single track so all the other parts could be overdubbed. Once the vocal and guitar parts were done, Pete would then pack the 8 track into a rucksack and walk across town to John Beech’s, house to record the keyboards. Pete Waldock then tracked his bass parts at his house. With the audio complete, Pete Morten set about creating the artwork and actually put the CD packaging together by hand. this started the trend, that now see’s Pete always creating the artwork for any My Soliloquy release. 
The Rest Is History The band received lots of great reviews for this humble effort and surprisingly a request for a copy came from Mark Ashton from now defunct label Now And Then Records. Considering the band had next to no profile and only a handful of shows under their belts at the time, it gave the guys great confidence in what they were doing, even if, ultimately, no deal was forthcoming. Roughly a month before 'The Creative Principle' was released, the band were invited to play their well documented first ever gig on 22nd November 2002 at Stripes Bar, at the Brentford Football Stadium in front of 200 plus people. The charity event was hosted by famous fantasy/comdey author Robert Rankin. By the end of 2002 the band had over an hours worth of material but decided to only record two tracks as a taster for record labels. To See New Horizons was written by John and Pete in a couple of hours, one summer afternoon. It has been a firm favourite in the live set, ever since. muscians Pete Morten Vocals/Guitars John R.
