limited edition of 1000 copies with a bonus remix cd. tunng, the london-based band release their fourth album '...and then we saw land'. since last we saw them tunng have seen members travel as far afield as india and as mirserably close to home as somerset and somewhere along the line they hooked up with malian desert bluesmen tinariwen, an experience that helped shape tunng's approach to the new album as mike explains, "we learned that you don't always need structure! as long as there is presence, emotion and groove. it taught us that everything is open and adaptable...". '...and then we saw land' is the first tunng album to take more than a year to write and produce, it's packed with big choruses and joyful tunes. "we wanted to make a record that would be a great live set,' says mike. 'my friend described it as 'epic folk disco brass magnificent,' and i'm not sure you could call any other tunng record that." three songs contain what the band describe as the megga chorus - a 15-strong group of collaborators and drinking buddies who lent their voices to the album one rainy night in an abandoned school hall in old street.
