The concept: place Tycho Brahe in a recording studio and have the band perform a selection of songs live, just as they would at a gig, so the live energy can be captured in a controlled environment for posterity.
The reality: the same lack of control applies, and before we know it we're dealing with poor sound monitoring, equipment breakdowns, microphone spill and general confusion.
The truth: You get what you paid for... We did. Did you?
The small selection of songs here represents a couple of band favourites, a cover for a good friend, and some requests from the eternally patient long term die hard fans of Tycho. To you, we shout “Thankyou!” This is for you.
Recorded live at Tall Poppy Productions, Sumner, Queensland, Australia during the extraordinarily late hours of August 25th 2010. Engineered by Jack, mixed by Ken Evans at Tycho Central.
