This album is a collection of BBC Sessions that we've recorded for BBC Wales, Manchester, Merseyside, Lancashire and for the BBC Introducing organisations too.

We hope you enjoy listening and it brings back memories for you!

I'd ALWAYS wanted to do a BBC Sessions record having been brought up on the The Beatles and Led Zeppelin's incredible collections of songs recorded for "Auntie" but even listening to bootleg recordings of Peel Sessions and the like by my favourite bands made this something I'd wanted to put together for us for AGES!

The sessions this summer for Janice Long were the icing on the cake really, and even though we performed them a long way from each other in a lot of instances I think they've come out really well!

Just a few memories though - The Cavern gigs we did for Dave Monks were two of the hottest gigs we've EVER done - and with them being around the time of the Telling Tales EP these were performed in suits. My dry cleaning bill alone that summer nearly bankrupted me!

One of the BBC Manchester sessions here was the night before we had a very early start to venture up to Southport to shoot the Taped Off The Radio video - Sam even had his banana suit in his car. We finished the session and packed away for about 2am and were in Southport five hours later! Strewth! No wonder theres plenty of pairs of sunglasses on show!
