‘Hamburg Demonstrations’ was produced, recorded & mixed by Johann Scheerer (Faust/Bosnian Rainbows/Gallon Drunk/Omar Rodriguéz-Lopéz) at Clouds Hill Recordings, Hamburg (Germany) using an 8 Track 2“ Studer A820 tape machine and mixed onto a 1/4“ Telefunken master machine.

Peter had always wanted to record in Hamburg. He was referred to Clouds Hill Recordings and turned up on their doorstep unannounced the next day. He fell in love with the studio and based himself there for the next six months. The album will be available on CD, 12” vinyl and digital download.

‘Hamburg Demonstrations’ includes a new recording of the Amy Winehouse tribute ‘Flags Of The Old Regime’(now called ‘Flags From The Old Regime’). The album also features ’Hell To Pay At The Gates Of Heaven’ written after the Paris attacks last November – it laments the fact that young people are now picking up guns instead of guitars “Come on boys choose your weapon J-45 or AK-47?” (Gibson J-45 being John Lennon’s favourite acoustic guitar),’Kolly Kibber’ inspired by Kolley Kibber, the newspaper man who meets a sticky end at the beginning of ‘Brighton Rock’ and ‘A Spy In The House Of Love’ a title borrowed from the Anaïs Nin novel.

The full track-listing is:

  • Kolly Kibber

  • Down For The Outing

  • Birdcage

  • Hell To Pay At The Gates Of Heaven

  • Flags From The Old Regime

  • I Don’t Love Anyone (But You’re Not Just Anyone) V2
