about

At the end of the drum tracking session for previous albums; 'Wax On Etcetera' and 'Diplodocus' I discovered some bizarre effects inside an electric drum kit. As I was running out of time on the session I decided to record some really quick drum beats without headphones on which in hindsight was a really weird choice.

The drum beats then ended up as six strange recordings then didn't fit in on any other album project so, in the space of an hour one day, I recorded acoustic guitar over the beats along with a single vocal take for each track. The lyrics for each where based on the throwaway titles I'd used to label them and weren't written down or rehearsed before clicking record - it became a weird experiment in spontaneous lyric writing.

Also - as an interesting side note; while recording the lyrics for 'Now Run For The Exit' the doorbell rang and is was perfectly in time with the song by complete accident. That's also the reason why the lyrics following on from it are; 'the doorbell is ringing again.'
