Homelife are not a band in the traditional sense; the 8 or so members are spread acrodd several time zones and fit this band in amongst countless other projects and commitments. Every once in a while, core members Paddy Steer and Tony Burnside (who write and produce most of the songs) gather everyone to record a new album and something happens.
It may all sound a bit disorganised and non-commital (Canadian Faron Brooks doesn’t even make it to the studio, choosing instead to phone in his contributions) but the musicx Homelife make is fantastic and has never been more so than on Guru Man Hubcap Lady.
