This is the second release on Kimi Records for Benni Hemm Hemm. With a move to Edinburgh, Scotland, Benni Hemm Hemm learnt two things: he learned to speak Scottish and that it's just as much fun recording at home as it is to record in the Sigur Rós studio. To practice his recently discovered knowledge, Benni made an EP by himself with his home recording gear, apart from the usual 10+ member Benni Hemm Hemm collective. This EP is called Retaliate and it's a collection of five songs which feature knives, gold, lazy pioneers, confident Talibans, blood-thirsty vampires, Stan-Stan-the-caretaker-man, and last but not least -- blood, lots of blood. This is Benni Hemm Hemm's first release all sung in English -- and with English lyrics, a new sound evolves. Retaliate is home-made in almost every sense. It is recorded in Benni's home in Edinburgh and Benni plays most of the instruments, very important exceptions being the wonderful contribution of Emily Scott (double bass) and Peter Liddle (trumpet & alto-horn). Retaliate is Benni Hemm Hemm's third EP (and sixth overall release) but the previous two, Summer Plate and Ein Í Leyni, have been released in Iceland only.
