It was spring in 2001 and in the middle of Europe. Where I can’t remember, probably Hamburg, Naples or Manchester or somewhere like that. Liam and Joe met Claudia and Connie and the four of them decided to make a record as quickly as they could. All the best records they liked were made quickly. They wanted it to be a punk electro reggae country mess, the sound of people with butterfly minds, getting bored quickly, getting excited quickly and all with a terrible urgency. Convening for a week in Munich and a week in London they made an album about the weather, holidays, boyfriends and girlfriends, sailors, the service industry, unrequited love, tom waits, sport, being afraid of going out, murder, record collections and small boats. Then the four of them went their separate ways, only to meet every now and then. The album would be called ‘Ice Skating’ and would be proceeded by a beautiful double 7” pack, because nobody seemed to make lovely packaging any more. And the band? The band would be called ultrafox…
