This CD was recorded in a very experimental way and of course I wasn't sure whether it was going to work. We did it at Street Brothers Studio, which had 'state of the art equipment', but the band recorded direct to DAT (digital audio tape). This meant no multi tack recording, so we couldn't mix or replace tracks later. In other words we had to go with the mix that we started with and were stuck with that. To make things more interesting we invited a whole bunch of friends (including the notorious 'Glueheads') to party, and drink beer. What we ended up with was a good, live sounding, non-anal tape of classic Rox material and a live audience. The cd cover was a bit of a stretch for me because I posed nude as 'The Thinker'. It all worked.
