The Psychonauts are made up of Pablo Clement and Paul Mogg, whose quest began in Yeovil, Sommerset. Their formative years were spent “crate digging” for the original recordings of their favourite samples, be it Hop Hop or Pop, and then playing these records at their club night. “The big jump forward was when we sent Tim Goldsworthy (DFA) a DJ mix tape we had done. Tim, an old Yeovil friend, was one half of James Lavelle’s UNKLE project. At the time they were both recording in LA with the Beastie Boys and our mix tape became their inspiration“ During this period Unkle was part of the highly influential Mo Wax Records artist roster, where James Lavelle was also head of A&R. In no time he had moved the two to London, gave them a residency at his ‘Dusted’ party and put them to the studio with Kudo from Major Force. “We learnt so much working with Kudo and Tim Goldsworthy. This was how we came into music production.“ From these sessions came the single ‘Hot Blood’ which served as a lynch pin for the album and a track James Murphy cited as a sonic reference for the 1st Rapture album. By now the hype machine had kicked-in with remixes and DJ appearances impressing all and sundry and a rapidly building fan-base. Among this fan base was Alan Moulder and Flood, the infamous producers behind London’s world class Assault & Battery studio. The two veterans of music production invited the Psychonauts and Kudo to record and mix at their studio. The team set-about working on the album. Since making ‘Songs For Creatures’ Pablo Clement joined James Lavelle as one half of Unkle. Paul Mogg relocated to Berlin where he jumped from project to project finally taking root with his latest outing as ‘Boy Of Girl,’ which itself is born from a previous project introduced late 2007 on the DFA/Super Soul compilation. In the wake of successful albums such as Hells ‘Teufelswerk’ and James Murphy’s ‘43:55’ it felt time to release the record as originally intended. Restoring the lost recording of 'Wild In Your Eyes’ and then repackaging and re-mastering brings the album full circle.
