This album was originally recorded under the name 'White Rabbit'. It was made available for free in 2005/6 through the archaic social media platfrom 'Myspace' - anyone in the world could request a copy simply by providing their postal address. The album was originally provided as a CD with a home made sleeve and hand painted CD, only 50 were ever produced.

It was fun at the time to send music to people, and the Internet was a new thing to me then so it had a real novelty. I'm still in touch with some of those people who I sent albums to, and although it seems sort of quaint now it was a good way of releasing music in a very direct way.

All these songs were recorded at home on a Yamaha MD8 8 track Minidisc recorder. This is one of two 'lo-fi' albums produced around this time ( the other being 'Blue' ).

In keeping with the original Myspace giveaway the songs are now made available here to download for free, I hope you enjoy them.

p.s. The original sleeve notes read 'Thanks to Marek and Simon for help and equipment' - so thanks again lads.
