This is the final album in my therapeutic trilogy that began with 'Emotional Feedback' in 2015 and continued with last year's 'Return to Easton Square'. Recorded at home using my laptop and an iPad Mini, I used a combination of real instruments (mostly electric guitar and bass) and virtual instruments/drum loops. I'm going to stop referring to the tracks as "demos" as the reality is that this is likely to be the best they are ever going to sound. Hopefully the result is human enough to retain some of the sentiment of the songs, but with sufficient technological assistance to disguise my limited ability as a musician. The vocals are all my own work, however.

American poet and songwriter Stephen John Kalinich makes a guest appearance on the album-closer. Stevie has collaborated in the past with both Brian and Dennis Wilson, as well as Pink Hedgehog artist Peter Lacey. His spoken-word contribution here means an awful lot to me and is one of the coolest things I've ever done. Around half of the songs here are newly-written; some are re-worked ideas from the vaults, one was written by my friend and former band-partner James Laming and another by my current bandmate, Steve Wilson. I hope you are able to get some pleasure from listening to this final installment of my musical therapy sessions.
