– Quitter s/t.
A mixture of 4-track cassette recordings with simple live-take digital recording, partly done in flat living rooms, halls and cupboards, partly in a friend’s attic. Continuing to experiment with song-structure and messing with/merging songs using collage and soundscape sections, the whole thing was then given a bit of light grooming in the mix and master process with Stevie Cossar (Scottish Power, Sumshapes, Howie Reeve, Gift Horse).
The ultimate aim throughout was to present the songs in a way that sounded as if you were there present in the room as they were being created, that they sounded real, unpolished and intimate (for want of a less creepy word).
