Billy Jenkins considers altered directions...

Strange meeting in suburbia

Beowulf Mayfield casts his mind back to early 1994 and the day he ventured out to Mottingham where London's deep southern suburbia blurs into Kent. Our presenter ventured to the remote spot to witness Billy recording with the Voice of God Collective and the Fun Horns of Berlin. The 10-hour studio marathon at Porcupine Studios, produced by Tony Messenger and engineered by Nick Taylor, resulted in the album East/West, released by Babel in 1996.
