THE BRUCIE BONUS

It’s not just musicians that can make definitive contributions to the music...

Industry legend and Saracen fan Bruce Mee has long been a friend and mentor of guitarist Rob Bendelow. And it is Bruce who must take some considerable credit for helping to shape the voice of the central character on the band’s new release – ‘Marilyn’.

Initially, my writing for the album was all in the third person”, says Rob, “with lyrics such as...

Must be a reason why she was born this way,
A ‘body to die for’ she has heard men say...

But then I suddenly found myself singing along (as best I can) in the first person.

...why I was born this way,
...I have heard men say...

That’s when I realised, pretty obviously, we had to enlist the help of a lady vocalist”.

Bruce takes up the story: “Rob called and asked for my thoughts regarding a female singer for the album? It took me about three nano-seconds to say ‘Robin Beck’! Rob was clearly in favour, so I contacted Robin, described the project as best I could...and the result is now there for all to see (well...hear) on this latest Saracen masterpiece”.
