Benni and Pete met in 2007 at one of the first SHMB performances. Pete, Ross, Rich and Fraser from SHMB started playing in Benni’s band. At the same time Pete and Benni recorded some songs together as a collaboration between the Second Hand Marching Band and Benni Hemm Hemm.
Nine songs have been produced in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Fife, Cumbernauld and Reykjavik. A long project stretching over seven year, 800 miles, sixteen instruments and eight singer.
The album is a totally self-funded, DIY, self-recorded, self-produced, self-assembled production. This is no mean feat for a normal band but try it with 17 people in 2 countries!
