The debut, limited edition 12" by The Illness featuring collaborations with Steve West and Bob Nastanovich (Pavement & Silver Jews).
The Illness are a UK collective of Sea-related personnel (members of Ambulance / Wolf Solent / Broken Arm / Alisia Casper) This 12" is the first release following 5+ years of scrapped sessions, line-up changes and other distractions.
This double sided single serves as a precursor to an Illness album, due to be recorded/released in 2020 (worldwide crisis permitting).
Both tracks were initially recorded in the basement of a former maternity home, Heworth Moor House in York (on Scout Niblett's old 8-track machine), then sent to Steve and Bob respectively. Steve recorded his vocals at Marble Valley Studio, Richmond, Virginia and Bob in Des Moines, Iowa.
The songs were mixed and Mastered by Iwan Morgan (Euros Childs, Cate le Bon, Gruff Rhys, Laura J Martin).
