Debut release from the duo of US guitarist Andrew Weeks and Ben Spiers. Black Window formed following a late night acoustic busking session at Wellington Railway Station ….. Gunwales couldn’t be much further from those beginnings as a bed of garage doom explodes into punked-up mass projection guitar, then collapses into tape warble. 3” CDR housed in an oversized gatefold sleeve with pro-printed outer and hand-painted inner. Edition of 60 copies.
released June 10, 2008

It's just so easy for Martin Phillips, innit? Even after more than 30 years, he's writing the kind of effortless melodies that most songwriters would kill for. So this is just another perfect pop record to add to their discography. This will easily be a top 10 of the year.
Thanks Mark, love both records - couldn’t choose between them - the best of both worlds of the music you make. What would be equally as cool would be to see you dive into your New Zealand heritage on your next double record! Surely just as much history and music to be had there too. Cheers rse1985
