  • Frontman James Skelly (from his record label's website): "This was recorded in our practice room in Hoylake, it started off a bit like John Martyn, that's where the inspiration came from, but I can't play guitar like him and it turned out nothing like him, but we just started playing on it and within an hour we had the whole tune arranged and we just recorded it the following week."
