You don't dream up a band like The Phoebus Mass overnight. You need one of them to spend his formative years playing in a succession of bands that sound like aircraft taking off, with drummers who can't keep time and bassists who can't tell the time. You make him play endless gigs in small towns to small audiences who are more interested in the beer than the band, only to discover the best is yet to come.


Their recording studio doubles as a two bedroom terraced house amongst a
cosmopolitan community in the West Country. Here, surrounded by Polish social clubs, Moroccan takeaways and the occasional axe wielding neighbour they record vocals in the kitchen, guitars in the bathroom and cello in the hallway producing a sound that has been described as "Kristin Hersh nicking Jaz Coleman's mic at a Killing Joke rehearsal whilst Steve Albini is playing guitar with the Sundays in the living room and you begin to start getting the picture."
