about

This bunch of tracks were recorded in John's bedroom in Patterson Drive in Law.
You can hear us in some places trying not be to noisy in order not to disturb his mum.
We used and Alesis drum machine, John's Dean bass, My Yamaha, Peavey Bandit and my dodgy Deville acoustic, a Yamaha keyboard, one bad microphone, some cheap headphones and a Tascam 4track portastudio.
If you can get beyond the rough sound, the calamity, the bad tuning and the trying not to sing too loud, this is a fun record and perhaps even the oddity of all the imperfections make it.
I tried a few times to re-record some of the tracks on this and these versions remain my favourites because of the magic and intensity in all the flaws.
