Album Notes
On their sophomore release, Cockles of the Heart deliver more starkly sumptuous jazz-flecked pop from the ether. The band spent five days at Magpie Cage Studio in Baltimore writing and recording simultaneously to record the album, Atomium.

Cockles of the Heart formed in December 1991 with Katka Kovarikova (vocals/keyboards), Michael Sheard (cello/guitar), Lyle Kissack (drums), and Tony French (bass). Katka, on an extended visit from Czechoslovakia, began work with Sheard and French in late December, 1991. After one writing session it was decided that there was need for a drummer and Lyle was asked to join the group. All of the writing and recording was done in a series of a few long sessions in French's recording studio - the Hat Factory. Many of the songs that made the first release were taken directly from these writing sessions with no additional work being done on them. This owing to the method of writing/recording simultaneously and to Katka's ability to take an idea and instantly create a lyric and melody from that idea.

After the first full-length release, Luxe, calme, et volupte, which garnered Baltimore City Paper's Best Album in Baltimore 1992, the band played a few shows before Katka had to return to the Czech Republic.
