Here's a quick rundown on how the album came about.

When Powderfinger took a sabbatical in February this year I continued writing and adding to songs that I was putting together from the few months prior.

There was a bit of a creative burst from March through May, before setting off to record with Tchad Blake, at Real World Studios in the UK. Charming English countryside and a batch of mostly acoustic songs made for great bedfellows during a summery June in Wiltshire. Jerry Marotta (drums), Keith Duffy (bass) and John Bedggood (heaps) all came along for the ride and we had a ball putting the songs together in a very casual way.

Tchad was twiddling the knobs and, between meals, we managed to get it together and do some recording.  The Bristol train was a 6am alarm clock each morning, in an otherwise beautiful studio setting. We laid rhythm beds for a week, tracked for two more, and mixed for a further week before finishing up at the end of June.

Ten of the tracks that were laid at Real World are present on Tea & Sympathy with four additional songs, (3,5,7,8)  recorded at my home studio in Brisbane, but mixed by Tchad. The band on these songs is a ramshackle bunch of Brisbane musicians that now mostly make up the live band.


Cheers,

Bernard
