Bastard Assignments album cover

As you’d expect, everything on the album has been written and performed by us – from Caitlin’s vocal pyrotechnics in dot drip line line 8918: EDGE to the instrumental rigour of Ed’s Hold for two pianos, the full-tilt oddness of Tim’s Enya Do You Need A Tambourine Player I’m Pretty Good and the pop-inspired elegance of Josh Spear’s Comedown. There’s also PrEP, the piece we made together for prepared brass and detuned viola – heard in our Mountview gig and also on Radio 3.
