about

Comb The Breaks was recorded in the summer of 2001 at Sylem Studios in Betws-y-Coed. Many thanks to Paul & Andrea for making it happen :0)

We had just split from our label Bignoise and wondering how we could get another album out with all the new material that we had been stock piling.

We had just recorded our third Peel session and felt excited about what we could do next on record but at the same time we also felt a little washed up. I guess we had realised that no one was gonna hand us success on a plate. We found ourselves in Maida Vale doing Peel again but yet we were unsigned!

Ankst management in cardiff suggested that we approach the band Melys to help us make an album. Melys had their own label and studio in North Wales. They were keen on the project and gave us twelve days to record it in. The experience was brilliant.

We had this big master schedule of how to record the songs that would allow us to do a song a day. It was like a military exercise. Nothing was gonna get missed out. Gez Jones engineered it and provided production where it was needed. He was a massive support to us and helped to bring out the best in the music.

We returned to studio Sylem one more time to add brass to the final track and remix a few things

Before the album was properly released in 2002, my son Ifan was born and I decided that it was time for me to leave the group.

I think now looking back that Comb The Breaks is the truest representation of how we wanted to sound on record. We were also exploring new ideas with rhythm loops and keyboard sounds.
