Recorded at a rustic, sunny, hillside ranch known as Prairie Sun Studios in Cotati, California, during a month long recording session in the spring of 1996. Each member of Bracket brought with them every musical instrument and noisemaker that he owned or could borrow. These included a vintage Wurlitzer upright piano, professionally “de-tuned” for a honky-tonk effect, a complete array of vintage guitar effects, various instruments and percussive toys, just to name a few.
Tracking was done on a Neve console, purchased from Pete Townsend’s Eel Studios in England. It was previously used to record landmark albums by Thin Lizzy, The Who, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Motorhead, The Damned and countless others. Session musicians were brought in, among them a string quartet, woodwinds, horn section, keyboardist, pedal steel player, and guest vocals.
Bracket had plenty of songs, imagination and time. Here’s what resulted while the record company wasn’t paying attention…
