The Rough Back Story:
Back To The Planet had been touring pretty much non stop all over the UK on the university circuit & supporting bands such as, Pop Will Eat itself, Levellers, Nina Hagen, Meat Beat Manifesto and many more..We Also played a lot in France at several big festivals including Festival Du Rock in Brittany. It was hectic, but amazing at the same time.
This LP was made in a quiet period between tours.
It was released on Parallel records which was a subsidiary of London Records. The tracks were mostly recorded at Surrey Sound studios in Leatherhead ( now defunct ) Turtles was made at the Greenhouse in Old Street and it was all mixed at Metropolis in Chiswick. there were other studios but I can’t remember which.
Management was Alex Holland
Publishing Westbury Music.
Our A&R People were Russell Stone, Pete Tong and Phil Howes.
Engineers on the record were Phil Dane, Ralph Jezzard Jeremy Allom and Chris Potter.
We had remixes of Daydream by Orbital and Adrian Sherwood.
It was an experience.
Still, the LP is there and that is something to be proud of. Enjoy a bit of BTTP history.
