Not quite a 'proper' J Church album, this features a mixed
bag of seven new tracks, four re-recorded and one - Violent
Motions Created - rescued from compilation album obscurity.
With a few days off around the time of their Reading Festival performance,
much of the album was recorded in a single afternoon at RMS Studios
in south London, where the Damned had recorded Machine Gun
Ettiquette. The session produced all the originals (except
Asha Blake), five Electric Light Orchestra covers,
of which Turn To Stone appears here, and the re-worked,
re-titled (I Want To See) Faye Wong. That song
was previously on the split 7"
with Discount, where it was recorded to 8-track. The new version
was named 'More' simply because it is a fuller recording.
My Favorite Place gets its third re-working, this
time with additional vocals from Harriet Scott. L.A.
and A Well Earned Reputation are harder versions
of the tracks from Travels
Harriet additionally sings on The Heroic Trio
and Turn To Stone. Manda Rin from Bis is also on
those two, as well as All Girl Band and The
Versace Killer. Adam drums on Violent Motions Created
and the two Travels... re-workings, Andee plays
on the rest.
The title continues Lance's love affair with all things feline
