We recorded this EP on a rainy Sunday afternoon in October. It's the first EP we've done without having a drummer, so we fashioned our own percussion out of a cigar box and a log. After writing the songs, we realized retrospectively that they are all indirectly about the current education secretary Michael Gove MP and how bad he makes us feel.

Thanks to Penny for letting us use her piano, to Richard for the log, and to Michael Gove (I guess) for the inspiration.
