Pictures of Lily play "Judy"
This is a demo recording of an original that we recorded around 2004 on a Vostex 8-track hard disk recorder. It was virtually recorded live and it doesn't contain any overdubs, apart from the vocals which were recorded separately. The band consists of a rather basic and conventional line-up, with two guitarists, a bass player and a drummer.
After a pause of more than a year, we have recently started to rehearse again with the original line up but with a new drummer. We hope to start gigging again in the Summer of 2009.
