Spare Snare, from Dundee, Scotland, celebrated 25 years of releasing records by asking Steve Albini if he would be up for co-hosting a Scottish Engineers' Workshop with the band, and recording Spare Snare for the rest of that week. A resounding "YES" was returned and funding was secured from Creative Scotland to host the workshop and record the album. The band chose to record ten classic Snare tracks from the catalog that have evolved with playing live, or tracks that would suit Albini's sound. These Albini recordings have become one of the highlights for the band, sitting nicely next to their four John Peel sessions. Mastered and cut with the word "audiophile" in mind: Recorded on two-inch tape, and mixed on to half-inch tape by Albini, the album was then mastered and cut by mastering legend Pete Norman. Pressed at Optimal in Germany. Brown reverse card sleeve; Includes one color print. 180 gram vinyl; Includes download code.
