The Rakes decided they wanted to record in a fresh and
exciting new environment, so they relocated to an industrial
area in the old Communist part of Berlin. 'The London music
scene is so dull - it's like wading through a swamp of shit.
We just wanted to be somewhere more inspiring,' said Rakes
singer Alan Donohoe. 'Someone suggested Berlin. It didnãt take
long for everyone to agree, we packed our bags and moved here
just like that. We love it.'
They lived and recorded in the grounds of a Bauhaus-designed,
Soviet radio station that had been converted into a studio.
On working with producer Chris Zane, Alan Donohoe adds: 'The
album is raw, playful, exciting, complex and schizophrenic -
much like the personality of Berlin itself. It couldn't be
more of a fitting place to record it.'
