— all established professional musicians and producers — decided to head to rural Finland, to a village called 'Häijää' to drink and take sauna for 10 days. Their base was a 200-year-old smoke cabin, deep in the forest. The main plan was to drink booze, especially single malt Islay Scotch whiskies, but also play music for fun. For their great surprise, after a few days of radical drinking and sauna the guys had come up with enough songs to fill an album. Luckily they had their equipment along; Most of the songs were recorded right away in the unique atmosphere and superb acoustics of the smoke cabin.
