Recorded on the 3rd of November 2002, in just 3 hours (Discharge and Mike Stone...? Pah!!!), at the legendary 'Band On The Wall' in Manchester. Mixed at 'Nucleus Roots' studio in Rusholme.

Produced, engineered and mixed by P.Lush.

It was quite funny when the owner of TBOTW arrived....he didn't know we were in there. Much back-peddling & fore-lock tugging by Paul enabled us to finish the recording....still sounds great!!!

it was quite funny when the owner arrived particulary as darran had'nt realised who it was and continued to bang his kit while the rest of us tried franticly to get his attention to tell him to shut up ...that and looking sheepish..(please mister can we finish)

we may well have been the last band to record there (anyone know different ?) before the overly long refurb program that is still going on.

yes it still sounds pro tools used.

True: no pro tools, however it was recorded digitally direct to hard disc and subsequently mixed from there. I think the sound quality suffered during mastering/transition to CD, though.....the master disc sounds far superior: really warm, fat and beefy, not as compressed, and almost analogue sounding despite it being a digital recording. I think Paul managed to get a very 'Dave Goodman' kind of sound, and considering the brevity of that Sunday afternoon session at TBOTW: it sounds the full nine yards................................I'll get me coat.
