They made one album dominated by Jaxon's mellow instrumentals. It
was recorded in what became Dave Anderson's Foel Studio in Wales
free from the angst of record company involvement and the dreaded
necessity to maintain a permanent band. The valve desk which Guy
bought had been used by Polydor throughout the 60s, for the recording
of the first Jimi Hendrix album amongst others.
Hugh was, at his insistence, recruited as a technical advisor and
engineer during the recordings and not as a musician. He banned
everyone from the studio in order to re-align the tape machine and
ended up recording all the instruments on Brain Seizure! Large numbers
of Italians came and went; a piano arrived by sheep trailer; David
persuaded the local bird population to perform...
Most of the above is taken from Guy's liner notes to the CD-version of the
album. It was originally released in Italy and then by themselves (no
label 1976) in a limited edition of 5000 numbered copies, which was Nic's
idea. The very first of its kind? There were no gigs.
Voiceprint's rerelease on CD of Guy's album The Long Hello Vol. 4
includes Jaxon's Looking At You which is the earliest known Long Hello
recording made during rehearsals, with Hugh on organ. The quality of
the recording could have been better, but it's ceirtainly worth checking
