by Nigel (now living in Japan) in 2003, with contributions added by Alan and
Steve in 2004-2005. Final sound construction & mastering January 2005.

Alan Freeman: guitar, guitar-synth, digital synthesizers, noises
and loops, voice.
In the 1990s Nigel moved to Japan, it seemed highly unlike
that ZBB would ever reform. However, after Alan and Steve returned to music
making, with Endgame and The Newt Hounds, Nigel expressed an interest in that
maybe we could do something together again. Nigel was now doing his sonic
construction using a Power Mac laptop, and we now had a fully functional home
studio, enabling us to add in real time live sessions along with Nigel's
pre-recorded samples. This was all down to having CDR recording equipment,
which after a few volleys East and West resulted in the CD on hand.
After the success of these recordings, Nigel announced
that he was coming back to England for a holiday, and in August 2004 we had
live sessions resulting in "Occidental Encounter" and the
remarkable hybrid ZBB/Endgame sessions that yielded the CD release "Fire
Lane" under the guise of The Zircon Game.
