So here’s the beauty, and where it all began. It creaks and drones, and we love it all the more for that. It has a character on the record we’re so proud of, it sounds full of purpose and effort, while a bit cracked and wheezy, swaying somewhere between altar and bingo-hall. We squashed her into a van and drove her to Pete’s studio, where she now resides amid shelves stacked with mics and theramins and home-brew. Touring poses a challenge we are yet to consider.
