★ It's bean a while....(still got it!) ★

So we could bore you with details of why this has all taken so long... but we wont. You know how the music business is these days. The album has been finished for a while, remixes are in progress and we are shooting a video for the album, as we speak, with the wonderful Jason X Lee. We are releasing the album on the new Berlin/Ireland based label Music_Laden.So just a little more time and it will be all with you. And much more.... In the mean time a couple of pictures from various bits of the (very cold) video shoot.

★ Bean Reaper - end of summer report ★

As summer draws to an end it's time for an update - the busy vegetable growing season made our posts here slightly irregular - we've been busy harvesting and making music. Mr Bamonte our manager is shopping around trying to find a sympathetic home, label wise, for the album which is now completed.
We will be posting some audio clips here over the next few weeks.
Above is a picture from a recent photo shoot we did with the video artist Alvin Lovelycat - and  below is an edit we did of Arthur Russell's "This is how we walk on the moon" - it's been on heavy rotation on the garden stereo and we just couldn't stop ourselves giving it a little tweak.

★ Beans, beans - the musical fruit ★

The first bean and garlic crops are in! To some they may equate to bad breath and wind, but the pleasure of eating these freshly picked is worth it...
Music selection served up by Locussolus (DJ Harvey) from his forth coming album... Guten Appetit!

★ Full Moon Field Recording ★

On the evening of that beautiful full moon we gathered up our field recording kit and braved the cold to get an assortment of out-door recordings for the album.. The wind by the river made it a little tricky, as did the slightly frozen fingers! Some pictures below.
We have decamped to Ireland to do a little more recording and kick off the vegetable growing season and then back to Berlin at the end of April for the final mixing session.
