After a change of direction from bluesy-alt-rock into ‘industrial funk’ territory, the band rehearsed sporadically over several months. We are talking 2 rehearsals a month with severe droughts in between. Finally we dragged our asses down to a recording studio. We chose G2. The recording session nearly didn’t happen at all. The building right outside the window had an external burglar alarm which decided to go off just as we started recording the first track. Hours went by and money down the drain. Finally the owner turned up to turn it off and she was none too sympathetic or polite. We intended to record 5 songs and ended up with 4 but lucky we got these. Enjoy.

The last track included here was the missed 5th track, Silver Surfer, here recorded a couple of months before in the practice room on a crapy phone mic.
