The Travelling Band on the recording of 'Screaming Is Something'

The album was recorded in a few different locations but most of the recording was done in a converted church called Kinclochspelve on the Isle of Mull in Scotland. It was so desolate and tranquil on Mull and that gave that session a real focus. Producing the album ourselves was made more interesting and challenging by being so far away from anywhere and we encountered plenty of technical problems that we simply couldn't do anything about as we were cut off from the rest of the world. There had been some scepticism from within the band at first whether we could pull off such an ambitious location recording but once we scoped it out we realised it was going to be a lot fun.

The Travelling Band's carefully honed mixture of folk, country, and understated psychedelia came as a result of their involvement in earlier acts ... The players are:

Adam Gorman: Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Pump Organ, Accordion, Banjo, Harmonica, Percussion, Keys

Jo Dudderidge: Vocals, Keys, Acoustic Guitar, Synth, Percussion

Steve Mullen: Vocals, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Banjo, Percussion

Chris Spencer: Bass

Nick Vaal: Drums, Percussion
