about

Z 1 - The Original Banjo and Organ Experience

Remastered in 2011. Z 1 is a document of the first era of Zapoppin' when the band consisted of Luke and Tom.

Recording Zapoppin' was a bit more of an experiment back then. Producer Sam Leonard was keen to get a natural sound from a unique environment so we spent a couple of days recording into two mics at The Poly in Falmouth during the summer of 2007 and this was what came out.

It's an interesting listen these days - especially considering there's no cajon or drums - so it sounds quite sparse in places. Yet, with odd singalongs like Taun Taun and Astrophysical, this is the definitive Zapoppin' record for many older Z-fans.
