Synopsis

Album Description
2009 release, the third album from the British Rock/Pop quartet. 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 didn't 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". V2.
