Chris Devine & Hadrian's Wall

hadrian's wall

Having left behind the sunny climes of Hawaii for the even sunnier climes of Phoenix, we are Hadrian´s Wall. In this place you can find all you need to know about Chris and his merry band, our recording(s) and performances, and what we´re up to.

Please note!

We're changing site locations. come visit us now at www.in-the-wall.com for the most current information. We won't be updating the Geocities site anymore, and eventually it will make way for a personal site with some of Chris's literary works, translations, etc. For now, there is still some stuff here that you won't find at our new location. So on with the show ...
We got home one night ...

after some recording sessions for our first album, Haiku Rd. After a great deal of deliberation, it was decided that the version of “The Edge of the World” we had just finished recording was, to put it mildly, crap. I admitted that perhaps it was a bit slow, and certainly lacked the fire of our live presentation of the song. However, I countered, sensing a mutiny on my hands, it wasn’t that bad, and besides, we didn’t really have the money to fix it.

I was out-voted, and despite the fact that I was in a huff for the next few days, I had to grudgingly admit that the new version basically wiped its rear end with the first one. However, with the passage of some time, I’m still not satisfied. Sure, it’s faster, and has a lot more energy, but it still doesn’t have the all-out punk feel it does when we play it live, and the tempo wanders all over the place, and ... well, there are lots of ‘and’s. So I decided to tweak it. A lot. The result is the Neon Mix, which you can listen to or buy from http://www.mp3.com/hadrianswall. It’s dancy, it’s electronic, and it’s even a little bit funny. And it was a lot of work.

Meanwhile, stick around and have a look at our site. Read the news it’s a little more concrete than the news has been these last few months, and we’re excited). Have a listen to some of our music. Look at pretty pictures. Read lyrics. Leave a message or read a few from our message board. Above all, however, have fun! gate
