To find out how we have offset he carbon emissions in from the manufacture of the forthcoming new CD, check out our ethos page.
In addition to the carbon offsets, nearly all the recording was undertaken at Britain's greenest studio Green Cottage in Bury, Lancashire.
The electricity used to power the studio was generated from renewable energy sources and even the hot water in the washroom was heated using climate neutral solar technology, augmented by a wood fired boiler during those long dark northern evenings.
Manchester City have the most amazing plans to generate their own electricity, with the help of a massive wind turbine on the Eastlands site.
We hope that this is an inspiration to the fantastic fan base and the wider public to show what can be achieved when people put their mind to it.
For individual fan interested in the environment and i saving money, the Windsave micro-generation product might be of interest: take a look at this link for more information:
performing at eastlands stadium, manchester 2006
The new line up of Any Hunt, Ray Godwin and Gary Philips have began recording the new album Artefacts and Findings which is due for release later this year. Updates will be posted as we have them.
Work in progress, this song is called Webs.
"BLONDIE IS BLUE HEAVEN
BLONDIE star DEBBIE HARRY has given her blessing for Manchester City footie boss STUART PEARCE to use her 1979 punk rock hit Union City Blue as a new anthem for his team.
Former hardman England defender Pearce - nicknamed Psycho in his playing days - is a huge fan of Seventies punk.
Now he's got RAY GODWIN from Manchester band THE DANDELION CLOCKS to rework his favourite Blondie belter with a Lancashire feel and renamed it Manchester City Blue.
Psycho will have it blasted out as his side takes to the pitch for home games at their City of Manchester stadium.
Godwin hopes to release the song as a single and top the table in the charts.
City are already flying high in the Premiership - currently sixth spot. Now their soundtrack should scare opponents even more than a crunching Psycho tackle." - The Sun
