About The Album
Taken from their Bandcamp page
Recorded live in one-takes (no edits), in one room with the band centered around two main microphones, and mixed straight to analog 1/4″ tape on a two-track MCI JH-110 machine. No external effects other than compression were used during tracking.
The tapes were edited the old-school way – cutting and splicing – to prepare for mastering. The CD was mastered in Brussels with top analog gear and A/D conversion.
The tapes were flown to Dublin for separate mastering and cutting of the lacquers for vinyl, which was done in a fully analog signal path.
