THE POINT - Give it a try 7"£3.99

Fading Ways Finland / Psychout Records proudly presents: THE POINT

Neil Leyton and Nicke Andersson were introduced to each other at Stockholm's Acetone studio whilst recording with Micke 'Rip' Borg. Leyton was working on his "Betrayal of the Self" album, back in October 2005. Andersson (along with Dregen) had booked a couple of days in the same studio for the recording of a tribute to a Swedish singer songwriter. They ended up also playing the solo on Leyton's "Hyperventilating", and Micke Borg kept in touch.

You have to know Micke RIP Borg to appreciate this, but years later he phones up Leyton and says, "You know, I been thinking, you and Nicke really should do a cover of The Jook's Aggravation Place, mmmm? What do you think?"

"O sure," Leyton replied on the phone from London. But who the hell are The Jook, he thought. So, to the rescue comes Fading Ways' resident rock n roll encyclopaedia, Mikko Jokela, director of Fading Ways Finland. "He immediately searched through his collection and found precisely the song, as he always does.", Leyton tells.

The sessions that ensued at Acetone yielded not just the Jook cover, but, perhaps not surprisingly, two original, written on the spot gems by Andersson/Leyton; the arrangements came easily enough out of some ideas Nicke had, and while he tracked them on drums with Micke on rhythm guitar and Bjorken on bass, Leyton worked the tape machine and scribbled down lyrics and hummed melodies that he then proceeded to record - everything came together spontaneously.

No hard labour, no politics, no jive, just friends making music in an old analogue studio. That, my friends, is The Point.
