Jojo Burger Tempest is the new album from the UK's finest electronic post-rock band Working For A Nuclear Free City, the follow-up to 2007's Businessmen & Ghosts. Jojo Burger Tempest takes place across two discs, with 15 tracks on one and the 30-minute title track on the other. Everything about the album is epic. It was recorded over a period of 18 months in two distinctly different locations: a warehouse in the north of England and an isolated cottage in France. Over that period, the band laid down a few ideas a day and amassed some 2,800 song ideas, despite claiming to suffer from writer's block. The longform track on CD2 was created in a single day using ideas that had found no home elsewhere on the album, like DVD extras reworked into a new piece of art. Says Phil: "I'd always liked the idea of doing a mix-tape kind of track like Q-Bert, Shadow, Yoda, people like that, used to do with their mix tapes. It's not meant to be a prog rock tune, more of a collage. It was a really fun way to work and felt like we were really doing something different." Working For A Nuclear Free City formed around brothers Phil and Jon Kay and schoolfriend Gary McLure. Ed Hulme joined two days before the band's first gig, cementing an unconventional line-up that doesn't always have a singer, though Phil takes the majority of the vocals.
