Musically this is art-pop at its best. It was recorded in a very basic way direct on two track with the whole band (3 guys, 1 gal:) plus a few special guests (most notable one on pedalsteel) playing inside their spacious rehearsal building. It also meant that the whole thing was mixed directly as it went to tape, which in fact made their engineer almost the fifth member of the band (hey, that happened before in music history :-). This also meant that if anything went wrong during the recording and they had to stop playing, they simply had to do it all over again. Talking about putting the pressure on yourself. But instead playing it all as safe as possible, they took to challenge and tried as much as they could to make everything sound as different as possible. For the progrock afficionados: the keyboardplayer of the Nits is former Supersister keysman Robert-Jan Stips.
And then you have the lyrics and that is why I said that only Dutch people can 'get': the words are chockfull of imagery that almost instantenously transports me back to my childhood during the mid to late 70s. The lyrics have a very childlike, magical atmosphere that is simply entrancing.
