British Poverty contains snippets of a speech made by the British Prime Minister David Cameron, he has not given us permission for this, but as we are giving it away for free, who cares! British Poverty also contains a parody of "The Candy Man" by Sammy Davis Jr. which was an idea of Ollie’s mate George "Big George" James. We haven’t got permission for this either, but we thought stating it would be better than saying nothing and hoping no one will notice!
Gay is based on a true story. Both parties have wished to remain anonymous, but have given us there blessing with the song. The trumpet solo in Gay contains a snippet of "I Want to Break Free" by Queen. This was Alex's idea, once again no permission, but how can you turn someone down whose nickname is "The Horn"?!
"CrackHead is also based on a true story. If anyone reading this is in the same situation, or are hooked themselves, please don’t hesitate to seek help from the UK National Drugs helpline (0800 77 66 00) a close friend or family member, or anyone you can! Drugs, especially hard drugs like Crack, are not to be fucked with.
This album contains no auto tune.
The views expressed on this album are mainly Emma’s and Ollie’s, but if anyone is offend by anything you hear on this album you can either A. blame Rob cos he’s Knob Allen so it’s clearly his fault, or B. take a deep breath, count to ten, and stop being so uptight!
This album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Chris "Wallzee" Wallace at the very plush 701 studios in Great Yeldham, Essex. It was recorded in seven days stretched over two months (‘cos Wallzee is a busy man!) and cost a grand total of £200. He’s a good mate of ours so he helped us out! His usual price is £100 per track, but he’s up for negotiating. You can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
