Twelve or so years ago we did a bit of a reunion, and that didn’t work out well for me. I wanted to move on a bit for my own solo thing, so I gave it a go but then went back to my own thing. But this one, out of the blue, John Bryan (of August Day) said, “How would you feel about doing your hits orchestral?” And I never imagined doing anything like that — but I’d like to hear it myself. So I agreed, and he said “well what about the original guys?” And I said “if you can get them, I’ll do it.” And they were into it. And everyone concerned with the original hits is playing on these new ones, so we didn’t have to work hard. We just had to go back and do stuff we knew. And it’s not like the old days where you had to be together — [with the Internet] we could be recording in separate studios. So it was really easy.
