The Puddle



It’s the album that the Puddle’s George D. Henderson has always wanted to record and it sounds unlike anything else The Puddle have released, while still retaining that familiar and unique sound. Producer Richard Steele (a saxophone player briefly for The Puddle when he was a student in Dunedin in the early ’90s) brought the band to Wellington and put them in Inca Studios under the expert sound recording engineering guidance of Mike Gibson. At that time The Puddle consisted of George plus long-time Puddle collaborator Ross Jackson on bass and Heath Te Au (who had played drums in Mink with George in the mid 1990s). This line-up of The Puddle had played together since about 2001. Let loose in a studio for 3 days they recorded two dozen songs, selecting half for completion for this album. Completing the overdubs and mixing took another few years (during which time George, with a new Puddle line-up recorded “No Love – No Hate” and “The Shakespeare Monkey” at his brother’s home recording studio in Dunedin). And finally.. well, here we are!
