Butler said of the making of the album: “I helped the brilliant Colin MacIntyre make his beautiful new Mull LP, Wakelines. We did most of it in my front room. Colin sang one song with one of my boys sitting on the sofa – only because he was waiting to get into the kitchen. My cats watched him sing for weeks. I even recorded that weird Russian harp (gusli) on it when I was really desperate for ideas one night. The shower became my echo chamber and the drum room one of the kids’ rooms. It was quite a lovely time. So I’m going to play guitar for Colin in London in October, and hopefully a few more. Come along. It’s a beautiful record and it’s always nice to play on those ones.”
