For the record:

The album was recorded at the wonderful Worcester studio, Vale and I was ably assisted in this matter by it’s talented owner, one Chris D’Adda, who thankfully got it. A lovely fellow of fine upstanding character, we were new to each other but that didn’t last long, a joy to work with. The timescale was tight, recorded and mixed in ten days, but I was ready and everything that had to be said was said.  Mastering was performed once again by that seasoned pro, Jon Astley and Jonny DED rustled up a tip top wrapping. The album is what I wanted it to be, and the result is a certain listen.

On the record:

If a man makes an album in the woods but there’s no one there to hear it does it make a sound?

This album was of course intentionally difficult, troubled and possibly dangerous. It made people I know look the other way, but it had to be what it was; a slightly harsh and honest conversation. The listener is invited to attend a musical therapy session and it’s not for everyone. I just didn’t want to dress it up, so I didn’t. Think of it as sitting by a fire with a good old friend who is telling all.  This is an intimate conversation, spartan and with few holds barred. If you prefer sugar wrapped then you’d best move along.
