Nette Split-12" mit Sex Hands, Paws, Dolfinz und Waiters aus dem Manchester - Indie - Underground. Recently we've seen a plethora of tiny, DIY tape labels spring up frequently releasing lo-fi guitar music of one form or another, from Paws' own Cath Records, to Comfortable on a Tightrope down in Manchester who release Waiters and Sex Hands' stuff, amongst others, to the likes of Tye Die Tapes in Sheffield and Art is Hard in Plymouth. So, we got first Waiters and Sex Hands, the two Manchester bands, round to our house to record their songs, and then Dolfinz the following week. Another week or so later Paws were playing in Edinburgh, and they came by on the afternoon of the gig to record their four tracks. The recording barely took longer than an hour or two per band, and we deliberately kept the mixes quite loose and unpolished, to suit the style of both the songs and the recording style. The cover design is a blatant rip-off of sixties jazz records, because they also recorded things live, released all sorts of collaborations and generally made recorded music feel like a living thing.
