limited double cd version thar features a bonus disc called 'it's what he's thinking'. this is basically one piece of music whereby andy votel has deconstructed the original album and pieced it all back together again in his own inimitable style with lots of loops, re-editing and so on to make it into something brand new. penning the soundtrack to last year's caroline aherne film 'the fattest man in britain' sparked a period of unprecedented creativity for gough, resulting in a wealth of terrific new songs. gough decided the best way to capture this surge, and give the songs the exposure they deserved was to release a trilogy of albums. the trilogy is called 'it's what i'm thinking' and part 1 is 'photographing snowflakes'. gough was invigorated and inspired by the approach of artists like mid-period bob dylan or neil young, who would go into the studio to record an album when the songs were flowing, rather than when the music industry cycle dictated to them. being back on his own label, one last fruit, and working closer again with twisted nerve's co-founder andy votel, has also reenergised gough.
