spoonfed hybrid

spoonfed hybrid is a Dream Pop duo featuring ex-Pale Saints lead vocalist Ian Masters ex-AC Temple's Bass player Chris Trout. The album was recorded by Iain McKinna when he worked as house engineer in the early 90's at Jon Turner's Palladium Studios just before Offbeat was formed. Iain also played Acoustic guitar on a track. 

The self-titled debut album was released in 1993 through 4AD offshoot label Guernica. A single and mini-album followed before Masters & Trout went on their separate ways.

The album was produced by Duncan Wheat as a hybrid of electronic and played musical parts created on Cubase with an Atari Computer. This was synced to an Otari 2 inch tape machine using SMPTE. The entire album took two weeks to record, mix and master. The album is now regarded as an underground classic. Read this recent interview with Ian Masters & Chris Trout
