Album Notes
Recorded in the wilds of Kent (again), using a mix of analogue and digital (sometimes both at the same time), this is our long-threatened Kentish-concept album, our own Songs of Innocence and Experience, hopefully landing just the right side of pretentious... Some of the songs are brand-spanking new (The Village Idiot, for example), others have been gigged for a couple of years or longer (including In Your Head, Big River, Battery In My Brain), whilst others have been plucked from demo/notebook obscurity (Roman Stones dates back a decade; I wrote Duncan Down when I was 19...). Most of the songs are just me and Leo, with overdubs, but Alex Powley added his formidable bass skills to four songs. Leo mostly played drums but also sings backing, played piano on The Wrong Kind of Old and Hammond on Barking Up The Wrong Tree as well designing the sleeve! That left me to do the rest, although Sophie Ebbs provides backing vocals on Invicta and the disembodied voices you hear belong to Jekaterina Petrova. The songs deal with a number of preoccupations and themes- the Thames Estuary, the marshes, the sea, mental illness, decay, bulldozing of town centres, phoney bands, temp jobs, carpe diem, buxom women.. see what you can spot! More info is available on our website and Facebook pages (both about to be revamped)...
