''Figure Skater' started as a bit of an experiment,' explains Charles. 'I was trying to match the acoustic guitar sounds from Dolly Parton's 'Jolene' at half speed (if you haven't heard it.it's on YouTube). Dolly's voice is down an octave.it's magical. I found myself just dropping in on it every now and again. When it actually came to writing a song it turned into something totally different but that was where the thing started. When we got to the studio the idea was to try and simplify the demo and make it as sparse as possible. We anchored the whole thing around drums, bass and Wurlitzer which ended up being the starting point for a lot of the record. I was lucky enough to have Rosa Slade, Rozi Plain, Katy Beth Young, Naomi Hammerton and Susie Merry down to sing with me. The lyrics have a kind of darkness to them and I wanted it to sound like one huge strange voice. We all had frozen margaritas and vibed the hell out'.
