Named after the tree lined street in Cleethorpes where the famed Shabby Lane recording studio is situated, Chicot’s next album marked another turning point for Chicot the Hippo.
By the time Chicot started to make this record the discord from The Blank Album had soured his relationships with his band, the record company, the producer, his manager, and just about everyone else. Chicot wanted out. His recent adventures with his own company Ample Records had left him broke and tired.
He hit on an innovative way to use up some old discarded and incomplete songs to fill up the second side of the album with a montage of leftovers, fragments, and improvisations spliced together into one longer song. Contrary to all expectations it was brilliant.
