George, Tony and Cliff from Pressgang help out on some of the tracks as does Marco from OffLimits. This is an acoustic album in the true sense of the term, showing a different aspect to Damian's performances, but anyone who knows Pressgang will recognise the voice, character and enthusiasm within this album. The album also illustrates Damian's growing interest in songs from regional cultures. So there are songs sung in Breton, Plat Deutsch on here.

Since then he has gone on to form HUMSTRUM, an acoustic trio with Marco from OffLimits (http://www.myspace.com/offlimitsfolkrockparty) and Horst from Wortsatia (www.myspace.com/wortsatia). This has meant that Damian can explore these ideas further with two hurdy gurdies, dulcimer, whistles and flutes, didgeridoo, bodhran and guitar as part of the array of instruments between them. Other languages are being explored such as southern swedish, Macedonian, and Friesian, Read more on Last.fm.
