Sometime ago Sam Fullman and Nick Reeves co-wrote a song called The West Country. More recently they were playing this song in different version, with their own bands, respectively Magic Brother and cassettes. Onomatopoeia Records thought it would be fun and interesting to ask both bands to record their version, plus another song each, for a split EP release. The original demo is an unlisted bonus track.
This release is Magic Brother’s debut release and is cassettes first official release after a series of underground, lo-fi, self-released albums. Both bands come from Croydon, South London, and integral part of the local lo-fi scene. This record was very much a Made In Croydon.
