about

Back in 1996 the Derrero boys all lived in one massive house in Newport. We were so well rehearsed that we laid down the backings for the first album in one day. It was rough and ready but that was the way we sounded at the time – all gung ho energy. We had never really recorded properly for any length of time either so it was all new territory. The vocals were put down after Xmas in early 1997 and all of a sudden we had an album.

It must be noted for the record too that Le Pub owner Kieran put out the Dipstick/Tiny Shoes single for us at the same time. We used the Bignoise versions of these songs although producer Rich Jackson was supposed to do the session but was unavailable. Le Pub in Newport was our main haunt and was the last place that I played with the group in 2002.

A lot of the songs on the first album dated back to the Brighton days and were quite old, this is the case with many bands first albums I guess. Dipstick was originally written in a country style version at half the speed! We played it as a 'Breeders version' in rehearsal one day for a laugh and our producer Greg came bursting in wondering what the tune was!!

We had a lot of fun with the vocals on that album. Riddle & Bend had stuff sung down traffic cones and we made Andy sing into the toilet bowl because it sounded good. There was a lot of screaming.
