The Master and the Monkey

by Gandalf's Fist



Download includes the Hidden Bonus track "Maurice's Revenge" and "Mastering the Monkey - The Making of the Master and the Monkey" - an hour long documentary Podcast by Dean and Luke.

The album that started it all! After much pressure from fans we've finally made our "Debut" experiment available for the first time digitally in lossless format. We've mainly done this in a way to show the incredible sonic improvement you will be able to hear on "Remaster and the Monkey" - the special edition we will release to mark this album's 10 year anniversary.

Although some of the ideas are strong, this album is marred by some troublesome production - Compare this to "The Clockwork Fable" which was released only 5 years after this! Luke and Dean basically wrote and recorded this over the course of a boozy weekend in his spare room - it's a fun little demo and a nice little snapshot into the humble beginnings of our crazy little band!

For "completists" out there we've included the inlay tray and Cd-face artwork that Dean used when he used to hand-make the CD's and post them out, (Maybe only 10-20 ever made in this way!) so now you can create your DIY CD too!

Enjoy - but don't say we didn't warn you!
