Gaffa - XIXIIXIII

Gaffa - XIXIIXIII

Recorded by Doggen at Mouse House Studios in Nottingham, the EP is Gaffa’s first recording since they reformed in 2011. To coincide with this they are also releasing a digital remaster of their first LP ‘Neither Use Nor Ornament’ (1978) with new notes from songwriter and front man Wayne D. Evans.

The musical essence of Gaffa is an honest, live immediacy. The first album, fundamental, live performances of excerpts from a well - gigged song book - virtually all first take stuff with added vocals and minimal additions to enhance meaning. The new EP continues that approach. Again, all virtually first or second takes with some added vocals, guitars and percussion. It's all intentionally unintentional and it's all there... the vital soul.

Both CDs are designed to complement each other graphically thanks to Eddie 'Myph' Smith, who designed the original "N" Products releases. The whole new package will be available both digitally and hard copy through yetiboyrecords.com and for download from main on-line stores.
