I had been in touch with Andy Votel since "Human problems and how to solve them", six years before the actual release of “Guide to Personal Happiness”. He had asked me to send him pretty mush all the tracks I had ever recorded in order to make a selection of songs for the album and therefore this album is a collection of demos recorded between 1997 and 2007. It was the first time that I didn’t make the artwork myself (as Andy wanted the cover to match the other Twisted Nerve releases) but I was happy with the tracks he chose, and only suggested him to add “Mixing You With Champagne” to the track list, song I just had finished recording before the release of the album.
