“"Radio Sweat" was all recorded and edited together by myself (Phil Platt) at my "Bootleg Studios" (The jingles in between were given to me by CP to edit in later once the actual tracks were recorded and mixed down, another album I did was called "Slime Boy" which was as crazy as "Radio Sweat". It was had a lot of fun doing these albums with what was the Albertos really. CP Lee, Bruce Mitchell, Simon White, Moggs Morris, Jimmy Hibbert and John Scott”

“Wow, my earlier question is answered, however, the facts are not quite correct, it was actually me who built the studio at Rogers "Big Top toys" I used the wood from Elsie Tanners "Western Front" Boutique, Roger was not sole owner as I was 50% partner (and he was the sleeping one at that) the few sessions he did record were all caberet stuff, it was also myself who bought the gear from Revo as Andy Mac was a mate of mine (That will be why Biting Tongues had to use Bootleg mid album because we had the Otari 8 track machine!), all the punk and rock stuff was mostly booked in by Bruce Mitchell and was recorded by myself, in actual fact nobody wanted to use Roger as he had lost much of his hearing and monitored on the threshold of pain. I originally met him through Tony Roberts and Chris Gill over in Whalley Range, at that time he was in "Uncle Rotters Pigbin Band" we later teamed up to form "Earthbird" an all original band playing songs penned by myself (this would later become "The Ride”

“Hi, Cruise Missike Blues was recorded in Bootleg Studios in the earlt eighties by Adam? (Kid Khaki)Mike King, I did the recording and if I remember right it was a 45rpm limited pressing, the sesioon was booked in by Bruce Mitchell of the Albertos, Charlie Parker were just another incarnation of Alberto Y Los Trios Paranoius anyway as were 'The Sons of Charlie Parker, (the other half of the Berts) in fact the same musicians had loads of different bands, Heavt Duty, CP Lee Mystery Guild, 48 Chairs, Bet Lynches Legs, The Smirks, The Good The Bad and the indifferent to name a few, all these bands were the same people in various formats! clever really, a band for all occasions!”
