about

Robin Proper Shepherd AKA Sophia is a brutal character. He calls a spade a spade. I met him in The Clockhouse pub in Farringdon in the year 2000.
I was a big fan of his music. He'd come to my gigs sometimes and would always be very frank about his thoughts. From 'Awesome!!!' to 'That was just rubbish'. I'd take it on he chin. Several years later we started on this project. If you know Robin or have seen Sophia perform, you'll know that their gigs are intense. He gives it all up and 'goes' there completely. So when he produces someone that emotion has to be extremely raw and in your face otherwise forget it. He always preferred my solo stuff to the bigger productions so here we set about recording this live LP in front of a small intimate audience at a venue just down the road from Angel, London. It is compiled from two performances. I quite like this one too...I just can't believe we didn't film it!
