The band recorded 8 tracks at the studio Al Mirador in Andalusia which is owned by Youth (Killing Joke). Youth joined the band on the track ‘Wheel of Life and Death’ and Doctor Robert from the Blow Monkeys dropped by and put a vocal on ‘Something to Prove’. The band recorded a track by the late much loved and missed Jesus Arias.
The recording sessions were followed by an all-star jam involving all the band, Youth, Jota from Las Planetas & Solea Morente.
The future of these wondrous recordings has yet to be decided. But Outsider says they are ‘fucking great’ and should definitely be the band’s first album together…
The Dacoits are: Antonio Arias (Lagartija Nick), Tymon Dogg (Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros), Richard Dudanski (101ers, PiL, Raincoats, el Doghouse), Jota Jota (Solea Morente’s band), Juan Codorniu (Lagartija Nick).
