Distant Cousins

Distant Cousins album sleeve

At the end of 1988 and the beginning of 1989, Distant Cousins recorded their debut album. Simon Milner and Neil Fitzpatrick both played on the album and co-wrote some of the songs. Neil produced the album.

Around nine years after the end of The Smirks, it probably doesn't come as too much of a surprise that the music doesn't sound anything like the original band. It's a mellow, smooth, pop/soul sound, not at all what you might have expected if you had just been listening to The Smirks.

The album was recorded at the Sawmills Studio in Cornwall and at Strawberry Studios in Manchester.

There were a lot of people involved in the album. Obviously not everyone took part in every song:
