SOLV 13B 


Summer of 1990 was glorious. THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS entered the studio on a high as "The Crushed Velvet Apocalypse" seemed to be embraced by a broad audience. Our label Play It Again Sam had been generous with the budget for a new record, and there was a spirit of daring adventure firing up the band. For the first month we pretty much jammed…and Bob captured many of these sessions on a small tape recorder placed in the middle of the studio. Bob had dusted off his sitar, Niels unearthed his monstrous kettle drums, Phil surrounded himself with synths and samplers. If it hadn't been for the mosquitos we might have played through the nights. Driving to the studio each day was a challenge in itself, as the last stretch was just dirt-track with huge potholes to navigate around. There were other obstacles too: sand drifts, Highland cattle that stubbornly blocked the path and Konik horses - partial to nibbling the plastic wing mirrors and rubber tyres on Phil's car. But…most dangerous of all were the nature walkers - they would shake their fists and rant about it being a nature reserve, and that cars were not allowed (always choosing to ignore that one board which read "except for residents"). The albums are presented in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with tip-on printing, with lyrics, tracklist and band photo printed on the inner sleeves.
