Stars OF CCTV

Back in October 2004, Hard-Fi pressed up 500 copies of their debut mini-album `Stars Of CCTV'. Recorded in the band's beloved `Cherry Lips' studio, (a former 24 hour cab office on a bleak Staines industrial estate), it was recorded for £300 worth of rent and the price of a second hand computer: the result was a DIY masterpiece.
Released on Necessary Records, `Stars Of CCTV' sold out within weeks, seminal US producer Rick Rubin was on the phone pronouncing the album 'a landmark record' and suddenly Hard-Fi gate crashed onto MTV, Radio 1 and the top of every major label's `Must Sign' list. They chose Atlantic Records and began recording the full length, no holds barred version of `Stars Of CCTV'.
Again the album is co-produced by Richard Archer and long time cohort Wolsey White. After numerous dusk till dawn recording sessions, the duo would jump into a car and spin around the B-roads and bypasses of Staines, Egham and ASBO-capital Feltham, quite literally road testing their evening's work against its intended sullen suburban backdrop. The album, by default, is an emotive, eloquent celebration of modern day rut and romance.

Bargain at that price

picked one up in a charity shop for a £1 the other day - agree with above - fab album!

I absolutely love this album, but must admit it does sound like a record that's been played with a rusty nail in parts. Would deffo get this again if it was digitally remastered though.

their second one never really lived up to this.

Shame I've got it already (lucky to have one of the 500 original and a promo copy)
