Limited edition CD version of the album with info sheet containing the back ground to the each song.


“Midlife crisis, teenage angst, put them in songs and sell them to the Yanks…they say “No thanks”…A family business and cottage industry (that makes no money whatsoever). We’re underrated and underpaid, still we refuse to change our ways. A band since 2003 but playing for far longer, accept no substitutes.”

Supported by Gavin Hellyer: Such a Bordellos record is this. Typically eccentric and recorded and played to their own unique specifications. But, as usual, amongst it all the melodies are pretty much all a joy to behold. In a couple of numbers I’m reminded of the quaint off-kilter songs Lou Reed used to write for Mo Tucker to sing in the Velvets. Favorite track: Gift Balloon.
