Sessions

Recorded and engineered by Matt Simpkins below Cameo Cafe and two floors above Vinny's Cafe, Colchester; at St Augustine's Church Hall, Ipswich; and at Studio Fuzz. Sessions lasted from October 2004 until February 2005.

Except: peeping tom & sunday morning recorded and engineered by Joe Murphy at JBR Studios, Castle Hedingham, Essex.

For the majority of the tracks bass and drum parts were recorded live before all other parts were overdubbed. All parts and vocals of There's a Hole in My Guitar were recorded live, while guitars, bass & drums were recorded live for The Autumnal and Do Yourself Right.

The recordings were made on a Fostex 16-track multitracker using AKG, Shure and Beringher microphones. Mixing was assisted by large quantities of coffee and whiskey.
