Produced by: Duncan Bridgeman & Jamie Catto
Sometimes people have an idea. Most often, that idea goes nowhere. Yet, sometimes, that idea is followed through, and something wonderful is produced.
In 2001, Duncan Bridgeman (artist/producer) and Jamie Catto (film maker and founding member of Faithless), had an idea. They took their digital camera and laptop on a journey around the globe. They produced something wonderful.
They cold-called the artists they wanted to feature, none were pre-arranged; they ran into Asha Bhosle in the resturant of their hotel - they recorded her vocals the same day, sat in the hotel's garden. None of the tracks were recorded in a single session; the drums for a track might have been recorded in America during one week, then the vocals laid down a month later across the world in Africa - all kept safe on their laptop.
As well as the self-titled album, containing the 12 tracks listed above, they also created a DVD, containing over 2 hours of video from the trip. The DVD is split into 12 chapters, each exploring a global theme.
The BBFC have given the DVD a rating of 18 for release in the UK.
It is being released with the tag-line:
Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost.
