The making of Anomic took place over a period of two years. MU had crossed paths with John a number of times and after a while talk had turned to the idea of making a record together, but it actually took quite a while to get started on it.
We had a very clear idea about what we wanted the album to reflect. We were keen to make an “ambient” album that had some grit, the sort of music that might make you think about the wrong side of town. At the same time, we didn’t want to make it doomy and grim.
