"The songs on this album were written over a day and a half period in late November 2011, apart from Irresistible Ruins which has been looking for a home since it came to me (with all of it's four lines) when I was wandering aimlessly around Cheshire Oaks (google it!) about five years ago. I don't think I've written that many songs so quickly in one sitting ever before, and certainly not used them all on one album in virtually the same order as I wrote them. The muse was with me. I went into the studio immediately after my two Capstone theatre shows (situated on my old school ground Campion), and we recorded the whole thing over a ten day period - taking time off for minor inconveniences such as Christmas and New Year's. My favourite records of mine are always recorded fast. Here's another one of them. Hope you enjoy it."
“I can’t wait to play these new songs in front of an audience, I’m very proud of them and how they have turned out” Ian McNabb.
Little Episodes is released in February 2012.
