Sound Bytes

In my enthusiasm for this album I've gone a bit nuts and sampled seven songs (and believe me, it was hard to stop at seven !). As usual these are in Real Audio format.

Where Do I Get This Album ?

You can order this album from the following stores

Greg's Music World or email to Be sure to tell them you're ordering from Shadow Cabinet, 'cos I get small commission :-)


As with many Church-related projects this has been in the works for quite a while. Recording was in progress as far back as June 1996, though it was still instrumental-only at that stage, and was going to be called The Reformation. The change of name came about because Tim Powles didn't like the second 'r'...these artistic types ! But what are you gonna do, huh ?! :-)

The rather odd title for the album came about because they couldn't decided on one or the other, so Peter Koppes suggested using both.

Julien has written a short article describing how he created the artwork for this album.

When I commented that the track 1:07 is, according to my cd player, 1 minute and 8 seconds long, I got a lot of emails agreeing with me :-) Can anyone else support that ? Has anyone's CD player reported a track length of 1:07 ? Actually someone with a ridiculously techy CD player said it was 1:07.556 seconds long !

The background for this page was kindly supplied by Julian Klettenberg and was derived from the original album artwork, which he also created.
