Outside Broadcast was arranged & recorded by John Haggis & friends; including poets, musicians & human hearts. The album was inspired and made possible by those who happened to float through the Granny it's OK to Experiment Studio in Waterford over the last year, hence the name; Band of Clouds.
John Haggis pieced this long player together while he was recovering from an operation which helped him to walk again. No longer able to play music live with his friends, hiding away and making this album became a music therapy of sorts.
The album was threaded together with fragments of found objects, stories and scraps from everyday life.
The album is available now as a digital download or limited edition handmade CD from http://www.bandoflcouds.bandcamp.com. Each track on the album has its own individual digital artwork, which all download as bonus material with the album. The plan is to release a limited edition vinyl in Jan 2012, or once 100 CD's/downloads have been sold, whichever comes sooner.
