All songs were recorded, mixed, mastered at OLD SCHOOL STUDIOS, which is in a nuclear bunker in Norwich, UK.

All songs were recorded onto 8 track reel to reel tape. Most were also mixed, mastered and released online that same evening. A few songs took a bit longer. You can probably guess which ones..

We make 1960s inspired songs in a disused nuclear bunker, recording straight onto 8 track with one ribbon mic. Think turkish rug.
