In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull marks a return to The Cribs’ classic three-piece status and heralds another chapter in the upwards trajectory of the Jarman brothers.
Recorded in upstate New York courtesy of David Fridmann’s Tarbox Road studio with Fridmann at the controls, a short self produced session at London’s Abbey Road and a few days in Chicago with producer Steve Albini at his EAR studio, the band have certainly clocked up the miles recording this hotly anticipated follow up to 2009’s Top Ten album Ignore The Ignorant.
