about

The majority of tracks were recorded, mixed and mastered in an afternoon on Abbey Road equipment at the Royal Academy of Music. I sang and played the songs to students who listened to them then worked out their parts. These are the 2nd takes!
The other track is Rollin' City, written on and about my favourite train journey, Birmingham to Totnes.
John Peel played Leeds for the Winter a few times on his Radio One show.
