James Beal, who at the time was in The Propagumbhis, and joint proprietor of Out of Step Records in Leeds had resurrected the Hermit Records label, which had been set up by another of the ‘gumbhis, Will. James asked if we’d like to do a release for him.
James was and still is a good friend, and he was also genuinely enthusiastic about doing an Imbalance release, it was agreed.
From listening to Fen boys, Vanilla Pod’s CD ‘Faster Disco’, and being impressed with the production, we booked ourselves into Premier Studios, Corby, January 2000.
A lot of credit is due to Iain Wetherell, ‘the man’ at Premier, Iain doesn’t mess about and we just got right on with it, we were there three days, and we recorded ten songs; the first six for the CDEP and the latter four for the split with the Propagumbhis.
