I discovered Pulco (Ashley Cooke) via MySpace. MySpace is 99% awful, but every now and then you stumble onto someone who really deserves investigation and Pulco was one of those. We’ve become friends since and in terms of music, have a mutual appreciation. We do different things (he can record well for a start!), but there’s a spine of commonality running through our stuff, so collaborating was natural – I think the first thing we agreed on was that there was not enough talking in songs these days, so set out to rectify that by doing a few stories with musical backdrops.
This album is a playful mix of our two styles, and it was put together pretty quickly. A couple of these songs were played on the radio (BBC Radio 1 Wales, and BBC6 Music). I’d like to do some more stuff with Ash.
