Ian Broudie (tracks 1–5, 8, 10, 13)
Pete Glenister (tracks 6–7, 9, 11–12)
Back to the studio with Pete and a collection of songs we have written. Debbie, who has worked for me on and off for sometime in many guises, takes over as manager. A new AandR Rob Stringer who later becomes Sony Main Man. We wanted to move on quickly. An album that was rawer more crunchy weird BV’s. Songs that could be stripped bare to guitar and still be recognisable…all went well until it was delivered and rejected. I was then sent in to record it again. This time with Ian Brody producing. I had lost a little of the energy in having to do it twice but Ian is a clever bloke and it was another interesting experience. Too wordy in places but still there were parts that worked. Some really good songs. Worst sales performance but no regrets. No supporters left at the label and the beginning of the most arduous wrangling to date.
The song Dorothy was written about Alison’s maternal grandmother
