Tender Buttons was a one-off - "let's go to Sweden and make a folk record!" - and so it was... Tanja, Marie and Marc traveling to a litlle cabbin out in the woods with instruments, a 4-track, an old echo-unit and some poems by Gertrude Stein for inspiration. On the second day the 4-track broke, and then we moved into the wood with a mini-disc instead. A limited edition 2x3"-cdr housed in a handmade cover with lino-cut prints was the result. Later we made a track for a forthcomming compilation on BSBTA of covers of songs by David Neuer, called Anybody's Anthems: a Tribute to David Neuer's "Mr. Anybody's Anthems", and besides the rare live apperance that's more or less it.

 

The 2x3" is currently out of print, but a new, criticaly revised and wisely condensed, single (5") cdr version was released on foxglove, and - after that one sold out too - in a third edition which stil can now be bought on Bandcamp now. And as for new music...who knows? All of Tender Buttons are currently working together in Distortion Girls along other projects, but one day we might travel to Sweden again...
