    The ‘Electrified’ EP (feat. Electrified, London Welshman and Dive) was released in 1989 on The Hepburns own label, Magic Records. It was the first and only release on Magic, which was co-founded with Scott Longley after parting company with Cherry Red Records. The EP was recorded at The White House in Kewstoke, Somerset, United Kingdom where they also recorded the ‘Totter’ demo which had secured a John Peel session in March ’89.

    The musicians are: Matt Jones (guitar, vocals, keyboards); Mike Thomas (bass); Les Mun (drum programming); Nigel Boulton, aka The King of Wales (lead guitar); Cronsey Jones (harmonica).

    The Hepburns now record and release their albums (11 so far) via the Berkeley, California based Radio Khartoum label.

    Designed by Othmar Motter of Vorarlberger Grafik, Austria, Motter Ombra was available in Letraset’s Letragraphica range. This is the original sheet of 48pt dry-transfer type where the letters for the album artwork came from. Note that most or all ‘N’s and ‘U’s are still there. For these letters, the ‘V’ glyph was repurposed — the liberties of the pre-Unicode era!
