Here is my new album. It looks like it has 2 tracks, but it actually has 14. The last 12 are what Bandcamp call 'hidden'. They appear when you download it. Otherwise you could just listen to it all for free here. Also I have added a bonus commentary track, where, if you press play at the right time with the album playing in the background, you can listen to me droning on about the show.
I really hope you like it. I'm very pleased how it all turned out.

Thanks to Stephen Markham for lending me the fancy Nord piano that sounds quite like a real piano on track 4. I put a Twitter out that day asking if anybody had one, and he offered to lend me his. What a nice thing to do.
Thanks to The Pajama Men for giving me the harmonium played on track 14.
Thanks to Alastair Foley and Julie Cooper at Whelan's and Luke for doing venue sound.
