This is a mixture of improvised recordings, loose compositions and archival bits and bobs. Snippets of interviews; background noises from gigs and travels; awkward moments from the cutting room floor; twigs rattled in a guitar; shuffling things around rooms; recording ruined by wind; and a never finished ‘pop’ song.
I’ve been sitting on it for some time now.
