In January of 2007 The Nice Folk headed out to the farmlands of Albion Park to Tongarra Studio to record the beds of 18 - songs on reel to reel analogue equipment. We got all the drums and bass tracks down...then the machine broke.
A year later in June 2008 we took what we had to Stewart "Leadfinger" Cunningham's Sonic Rendezvous Studios and finished the tracks.
It was a strange time for The Nice Folk...they always are with this band. The band line-up was changing mid-recording and somehow, somewhere along the line the joke was starting to sound like we might just know what we were doing.
Anyway the results speak for themselves these 10...or is it 11 ; ) tracks got there in the end along with some help from some of our friends.
