Around 2005-2007 I recorded quite a lot with people from Auckland, NZ's Wine Cellar scene but these sessions seemed technologically jinxed and few recordings survived. This one with Sam Hamilton (City People's Farmers Music, Muffin Seeks Sunship, The Absolutionists, Jan Anderzen duo) and Andrew Scott (Metal Rouge, Nest, Huzun) sounds like it barely survived (recorded with the inbuilt mic on Andrew's laptop and yes, the sound is a bit rough) but survive it did. The claustrophobic sound only adds to what was a pretty special atmosphere that Sunday afternoon in The Wine Cellar. Single notes drip from the ceiling, thick clouds of 6-string fog hang in the air. 60 copies.
