Like 611 Florida Ave this was compiled from live recordings I'd shortlisted for potential release on what eventually became Pretty Mushroom Clouds. As the title suggests these were all recorded in the UK and Europe using a fairly minimal setup as dictated by the restrictions imposed by baggage allowances. Essentially my live kit was a guitar, a laptop, a mixer and about 3 effects pedals. Field recordings were played via an iPod and that was pretty much it.
