Once, a long time ago, we went to Sweden to record our songs inspired by Gertrude Strin's "Tender Buttons" in a small cabin. The second day our 4-track-recorder broke, so we moved out in the surrounding woods armed with a mini-disc, Tanja's guitar and our collection of small instruments.

The result was a 2x3"-cdr in handmade covers with lino-print, photographs and more which, as these things go, quickly went out of print. A revised re-release was put out by Foxglove Records in 2007. This went out of print too.

Then, years later, we were aproached to do live versions of the songs, so we relearned everything (more or less) and made a third edition of the album for The Cat Box Corp. again, containing the same songs as the Foxglove-release.
