about

Recorded at weekends, in a studio Mr. Eddie Fenn had built in the cellar beneath his abode, from spring to autumn 1993.

The nucleus of Stepbrothers were the aforementioned Eddie Fenn - ex member of Marc Riley's Creepers , Tools you can Trust , and early Factory Records act Crawling Chaos; John Gill, a cheerful and gentle studio technician of the highest order affiliated to the Mekons , Edward the second - and through his work at the Band on the Wall a source of encouragement and knowledge aspiring musicians could tap into; the trio was completed by Ian Moss , ex Hamsters vocalist.

The initial recordings were very machine based and drew record company interest but as the material developed more and more 'real' instruments were used, with many guests contributing , the album was completed but by now record company interest had cooled.

More tracks were started featuring other musicians and then life intervened which meant Moss had to withdraw.

Stepbrothers continued as a vehicle for Fenn and Gill using an assortment of vocalists until the illness and death of John Gill. He was a well respected and much loved friend to so many, and an all day memorial show at the Band on the Wall saw many musicians he had helped and collaborated with paying tribute to his memory. These included Eddie Fenn , Ian Moss , and the Mekons.

This release is dedicated to the memory of John Gill.
