It all started with the idea of two musicians, who had never played together before, meeting up and immediately recording their first session. And so, Rob arrived at my home one afternoon with his three suitcases of guitar/pedals/effects and off we went.
We ended up with three hours of improvisations which we felt might have some ‘moments’. That was Stage 1. Stage 2 involved a lengthy process of listening, editing, re-ordering and mixing finally arriving at the 50 minutes of music on this album. No other musical material or treatments were added to the original first-take recordings.
Be it a geographical location, a group of people, a childhood memory, or a spiritual ideal, ‘home’ is that special place we all long for. While making music with Rob I certainly felt very much at home.
Bonus Track: ‘Going to Find the Brontës’ was written for a poetry performance by Kelly M Pennhaligon in 1996. A sort of road-movie on the moors…
Original album released in 2004
