Fun Facts:
* After George returned from the Czech Republic to the uk, it was not long before he became involved in the music scene again.
* One of the bands he worked with at that time was Search Party.
* George’s role was sound engineer and manager.
* Soon afterwards the band was signed to indie promotors Masswick.
* Search Party were a favourite band of the party scene from around 1997 onwards.
* Serendipity was inspired by a Search Party song called One Direction
* Serendipity was composed in honour of the band Search Party and their wider entourage.
* A search may lead to serendipity, after all.
* A little Search Party material is available to be heard in the Archives section at the Wud Records website.
* George didn’t have any of the lead guitar part worked out until the record button was pressed.
* Dave’s astonished face when he heard it for the first time was a picture!
* He scratched his head and said “Wow, that’s a completely different tune to the one I thought it was!”
* The backwards acoustic guitar was a substitute for an acid trumpet, a player for which could not be found.
* The lead at the start is handled by Nicodemus with the acoustic and the Ice Maiden doing the rhythm.
* After a time, the electric guitars swap roles.
* The swoopier lead and high notes moves to the Ice Maiden while Nicodemus takes the heavier rhythm.
* The ‘verses’ are an F# major chord rooted on the second fret, with the B and hi-E strings open, then E minor.
* Chords involving fretted notes with harmonics are F#11 and E minor.
* Although Serendipity starts in the key of F# (the very first note is E), it ends on a B minor.
* Tempo is a determined 136BPM.
