Alessandro was a breath of fresh air in his enthusiasm to get the project done and done quickly and right off the back of that, Pete and I were energised to dip into something more akin to our post punk years and the world of Frenzid Melon and the insane picnic recalling the spontaneity and vitality of the creative process. We have always operated slightly outside of generic boundaries even when we first began in the late 1970's, such is the diversity of our influences and points of inspiration.
This is as close as we will ever be to being a four piece band (even though there are only two of us). It's fairly minimalist in it's instrumentation, the music is immediate and feels very live.
So an EP will be released next week and an LP will follow soon after in the early autumn. The EP is titled "Hit Parade" and features four tracks, none of which will be on the LP.
1. 100 Poets (The Buzzard)
3. Cosmic Dead Stars
4. Hit Parade
These four tracks were the first four recorded in these sessions and we felt they were naturally cohesive with each other and the remainder of the session seemed to also be cohesive as it's own group of recordings hence the two separate releases.
