Oh I say it's the Sexual Objects in session this fine evening - Davy Henderson's latest popular beat combo, released their debut album Cucumber as a vinyl - Lp only earlier this month on Creeping Bent and Aktion und Spass labels.

The band are Davy Henderson Lead vocals / lead guitar, Simon Smeton Guitar / backing vocals, Graham Wann Guitar / backing vocals, Douglas Macintyre Bass / backing vocals and Ian Halford Drums / backing vocals.

Davy Henderson, previously leader of the hugely influential Fire Engines and The Nectarine No.9. The group has released four limited edition singles to date exclusively on 7" vinyl, all of which have sold out.

The tracks on Cucumber were recorded in various studios in Scotland and featured several producers; Boards of Canada, Russell Burn (Henderson's old Fire Engines cohort), and John Disco (Bis). The initial idea of the singles was to capture the raw immediacy of early records by the Move and Modern Lovers, however echoes of John Cale's early solo work and Lou Reed's Transformer pervade the overall sound of album.
