Recorded live during the "Inland Harbours"-Tour with Nightbird in April 2017 at our show in Frauenau, Germany at Gasthaus Gistl. There's a long history of remarkable evenings I spent & shows I played there starting from a performance with The Anglo German Low Stars in 2002, to a weird evening with Matt Everett and Mano Nelson in 2003, to my first encounter with the Silverdolls in 2005 and quite some more over the years. Soundtech Robert Wöller recorded the show without telling us hence I guess we played a good one... Thanks Robert, all of you who turned up and of course Nightbird.
The cover shot was taken during my long spring tour 2017 in Krakow. A wonderful place and a key moment for the upcoming album "Homeland".
