Cuz in session, which is a collaboration between Sam Dook (The Go Team) and Mike Watt (Minutemen, Firehose and The Stooges). The chaps met at a music festival 8 years ago and decided to make a record.

It took them 8 years to complete the album as Mike was touring with The Stooges on their Raw Power tour and would find time to run off and meet Sam to start the ball rolling. That ball was/is Tamatebako. The title is a kind of Japanese equivalent of Pandora's Box.

He hadn't even thought of putting a live band together until we asked, begged, pleaded for them to do a session for us.

Mike is flying 7,000 miles just to come to Salford.... I think this must be a record.
