A large part of me thinks there should be an Eagleowl Interviewers' Support Group. They are some of the loveliest people you will ever meet, but getting them to talk is like trying to learn Kung-Fu in an afternoon. I've been down the pub with these guys, so I know it's not like they don't have anything to say for themselves, it's just that teasing it out of them with cameras and microphones present requires a black belt in interviewing people which I quite simply do not have yet. Next time I will be prepared. Possibly no more successful, but prepared nevertheless.
The music has come out beautifully, recorded by Neil Pennycook and Gavin Tarling, and mixed by Neil - eventually. Dylan took the pictures, and I have a Song, by Toad set on our Flickr page, but Dylan's full set can be found on his own site at Blueback Hotrod. I've made videos of the songs themselves and there is of course the main video at the top of the page which gives a not-entirely honest and rather heavily edited impression of what the whole day was like.
The playlist for the interview podcast is at the bottom of the page and as per usual all the Toad Session recordings are available for free for you to download and generally do as you please with. Hope you like it.
