Kill or Cure
Lyrically, these songs attempt to describe some of the inner demons and angels which most of us live with from a detached and light-hearted viewpoint. Musically, the aim was to avoid blandness or over-production, while still giving the songs the colours they needed. 2 songs were done completely live. Real piano was used instead of keyboards and in many cases double bass instead of bass guitar. Each of the 3 batches of songs from the sessions in London, Leeds and Suffolk uses a different musical and production approach, which hopefully enhances the album. The collective personnel take the music further than Ben's solo outings but never to the detriment of the songs.
