Liner Notes

Before The Forefathers was The Solarflares... Same people, same music. And this album was a kind of forerunner to the new Forefathers album, in that it contains re-recordings of some older songs, plus some rough as old boots live stuff and cover versions.

It was made in 2003, and the idea was that it would be a kind of 'official bootleg' only available at gigs. The problem was that soon after we did the second pressing, we decided to call it a day - leaving a big box of unsold CDs. Copies have been available on a couple of mail order sites, but none of us have made an effort to let former fans know that it is still around...too busy trying to sell the efforts of subsequent bands!

The album is a collection of covers, live versions, and re-recordings of songs that we felt had been improved when Parsley (organ) joined the original trio. Apart from the live recordings, the whole album was knocked out in a couple of days on an old 8 track recorder in Graham's garage using the same gear and recording methods we used to make 'Look what I made out of my head', our previous (and my favourite) Solarflares album.

The Solarflares made 5 albums in total between 1999-2004.This album gives a good account of what we were about - fiery, violent Medway garage rock with proper tunes...

The Solarflares line-up:

Graham Day (vocals, guitar)
Allan Crockford (bass, vocals)
Wolf Howard (drums)
Parsley (organ 2001-2004)
