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.
