Having had the help of Peter Miles to record a number of gigs throughout Howards Alias' time as a band, I've often thought about putting this album together and with June 2014 marking 10 years since 'The Answer is Never' was released, I thought now would be a good time!
Recorded on December 22nd 2004, this gig was a homecoming show and the end of an amazing journey since the release of our second album 'The Answer is Never'.
Listening to it gives me a glimpse of something I couldn't really be objective about at the time - a band willing to put everything on the line to say something and connect with people. We may have had a lot to learn about songwriting, musicianship and performing at this point but what we lacked in wisdom and precision, we more than made up for with the energy and passion we gave to our music.
Warts and all, this album can now stand testament to everything we were as a band and also what wonderful, warm and supportive fans we had.
