Originally recorded as part of a 2015 session at Hackney Road Studios and featuring Fraska on drums. Let the Kids Run the Country was then re-recorded in 2016 when the band had shrunk to just four members after the departures of J-Rod and Minx in November 2015 following a 2nd support to Toyah, this time at the Garage in Highbury and Islington and The Beautiful Wolf in February 2016.
The new recording was then included on the bands third Album Art is Magic. This single version was released as a limited edition 7 inch single (which included My Consciousness from 2014 on the B-side) to celebrate the bands return to the 02 in Islington for a support show for Gene Loves Jezebel’s 2019 tour, as line up that also included The (Danse) Society and Department S.
Both of these tracks were mastered by Dave Doll at Farm Factory Studios in Welwyn Garden City, after usual producer Steve Honest had sold his Hackney Road studio.
