This is not a "Best of The Housekeeping Society", but rather a selection of tunes that are the most in keeping with the direction that the band are currently going; a statement of where we are today. These tracks are taken from our five albums (all available in full elsewhere on Bandcamp) "This Way To Power", "Postcards", "Songs From The Orange Dog", "Wilderness", "Round Window" as well as the soundtrack we created for the film "Let Bygones Be" and some other bits and bobs, including our collaboration with poet Ralph Dartford for the Pete Mckee exhibition "Thud, Crackle, Pop".
released May 9, 2014
The Housekeeping Society are Ric Neale and Ivan Mack.
Rather than going through all of this track by track, it is far simpler to do a 'shout-out' so to speak, to all the people whose skills have been utilised on these recordings. These include Gary Chilton, Spencer Bayles, Lizzie Hussey, Ralph Dartford, Rob Reed, Danny Christiansen, Simon Cantrill and Muppet the dog
