Hanging Out In Heaven (2000)

Hanging Out In Heaven Cover Art 2

Although it seemed like a long time between Spirit Level and Hanging Out In Heaven, I had been very busy with All About Eve  and three different productions in Sweden with Håkan Ahlström, Moderna Män and Justin Clayton. Most of the Hanging Out In Heaven album was recorded in LA with Shep Lonsdale in his home studio but it never seemed quite finished so it sat on a shelf for a while. I was contacted by Robert Walker from Heyday Records in San Francisco and he showed great interest in releasing it. So I finished the album in Gävle a town north of Stockholm where I had worked on two of the productions with Andreas Ahlenius at the controls. We recorded 4 more tracks completing the album, one of them was Forget the Radio featuring Christer Bjorklund on drums. The album also featured the tragic I Don’t Think so, written spontaneously, lyrics and music in my flat in Ladbroke Grove in London.
