    Recorded at Northcote’s Social Club on February 6, “in front of a live studio audience”. Like it’s predecessor, /ðə'bæzɪtʃ/ was mixed at Abbey Road Studios by Chief Engineer Peter Cobbin (Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter).

    Features extra part-time Basics David Bramble (Vocals, Keys, Percussion), Simon Imrei (Vocals, Guitar), Gideon Brazil (Saxophone) and “Uncle” Monty Mackenzie (Saxophone).

    Kris Schroeder: “For years we’ve worked at bringing the energy of our live shows into the studio and thus far it’s been a bit hit-and-miss. The trick this time was to pull a switcheroo and bring the studio into the live show; the result is the best and closest to us we’ve sounded yet.”
