The latest incarnation of Perhaps Contraption, this lung-powered mobile device, was formed through a process of serendipity and tenacity, desperation and inspiration, sometime in April 2011.
After a long, muddy, glittering and glorious summer parading these sounds, our voices and the ever-squeaky mutant pram around various festivals, we decided to record it.
We hope your ossicles are pleased.
On Listening Bones, Perhaps Contraption are comprised of;
Squier Squier voice, flute, piccolo
DeeDee Window voice, drums
Mickey Bones voice, trombone
Felicity Status voice, clarinet, glockenspiel
Horace Sousatron voice, tuba
Emily Andromeda voice, french horn
The Bracket voice, alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet
Uncle Shhh voice, bass trombone
Captured on 4 consecutive Sundays during October 2011, at the Premises Solar-Powered Studios, London.
Produced and mixed by Jason Howes and Squier Squier (apart from Drugs and Faith, and Listen! which Peter Z and Squier fiddled with)
Jason then mastered the whole thing at The Premises sometime in March 2012.
