When I was touring a lot in Europe, Normal Records asked for a distinctly different type of album from me. It was to represent the live and acoustic sound of my concerts in Germany, Greece and other parts of Europe. At times, it was in solo form, or with Charlie Owen and other collaborations. There was also one tour with The Aspersion Caste in the early days. So we started with "The Ugly Truth". Following it's success, we moved onto "Midnight Rain", and completed the set with "Life@The Basement" aka "Live @ The Basement".
They were fairly low budget recordings, which was fine, since we were trying to capture a live feel. The final album was entirely Live...at The Basement, of course...and was also filmed as part of the documentary "A Night At Sea" for Round The Outside Productions. It was first screened on ABC TV in 2000 in Australia. Please enjoy these albums, which were once Mail Order only - limited to 2000 copies, through Normal Records, Return To Sender, and Glitterhouse Mail Order.
