April 2017, Steam Age Records
17 years after the last one, and 12 years since we started recording, our “difficult” third album is ready…
Plain English is quite a milestone for us. It marks a transition in the band’s personnel, since it includes performances from both Dave Wilmshurst and Dick Wolff. It is digitally recorded, resulting in very good sound quality. Most importantly, it is musically very mature. It consolidates material that we have been performing for several years, and includes several new departures, pointing the direction for future developments. Lastly, we have had lots of copies printed, and it is available through local shops and, hopefully, some mail order distributors. However, we recommend that you buy it directly from the band, since it’s cheaper for you, and we will make a small profit – eventually!
Our first proper album, available on CD as well as cassette, Daddy Fox includes the three tracks on 3×3, one recorded live at The Oxford Folk Club, and seven new studio numbers. Only 150 CDs and 50 cassettes were printed originally, and all have now been sold. However, we can run-off copies on CD as required.
As its name is supposed to suggest, 3×3 is a set of three tracks; a sort of EP. We intended it primarily as a demo tape to send to club and festival organizers, but made enough copies to sell to friends and at gigs. All have now been sold.
3×3 and Etiquette
Etiquette was a 4 song cassette released by Faux Pas in 1995. At the request of some friends who already had copies, we recorded 3×3 onto the (blank) B-sides for a very nominal fee, and reprinted the sleeve notes. This proved very popular, so we did the same to the remaining dozen or so unsold copies. This one sold out very quickly.
