10 years in the making

This album began I guess around 1995 when I was writing my book I & I Must Be Alone

All the lyrics were written and the backing tracks recorded to my trusty 4 track tape

There they stayed until I mastered the backing tracks to CD at White House Studios in 1998

It wasn't until I planned my 40th birthday party that I actually compiled and realized this album

The vocals were recorded during February of this year (2005) and were mastered to the original backing tracks, again at White House Studio by the ever helpful Martin Nicolls


Full lyrics are available on the links below


All breakbeats from E-Zeee Lees' record collection, mostly

Jon Canon played guitar on "Think About Life"

Rap on "The Door" assisted by Clive T.V.
