The majority of the album was recorded at Paul’s Hog Hill Mill studio in East Sussex. This is also where some of the tracks were written with Elvis Costello.
Recalling working with Elvis, Paul said: “I was looking for someone to work with, trying to think of something imaginative to do and one day my manager said ‘do you fancy writing with Elvis Costello? It might be a great thing’. I said ‘yeah’. He (Elvis) came down to my studio and we sat opposite each other with our guitars because I had said to him early on that this is how I’d written with John, with me being left handed and him being right handed, it was almost like looking in a mirror. We did virtually what John and I did which was just make up a song a day.
“Because we were working above the studio, we’d just go downstairs and make the record, just the two of us singing exactly what we had made up. So there were a few recordings that haven’t been released. We keep saying to each other that they’re good because they are raw, it’s hot off the skillet’."
