Woman’s Hour was recorded at Cosford Mill (97-98) by Josh Macrae, during the “Draining Venus sessions” and features the same musicians (listed below)
The plan was to do a “band album” in contrast to the minimalist “Draining Venus” to expose a more “industry-friendly” collection of songs to woo prospective distributors and investors.
Smashing Records supported this by showcasing the band, a “one nightstand” in front of industry and fans it didn’t however have the desired outcome.
The gig was recorded “completely live” by Josh and Deano and became the appropriately titled LP “Dead at the Country Club” a debut and an obituary, a record of what was and might have been.
Recorded at Cosford Mill Surrey 1997 - 98.
