Letter from Angus Stone: I wanted to introduce you to Lady of the Sunshine, some songs i have been working on... the record Smoking Gun. I’ve been skipping off in between tours for about a year now to shake my head of these songs.Every emotion in my head has it’s own voice and this record is what came of them. Last year the old man gave me his old telecaster which gave me the chance to move into a heavier sound. I tripped off up to North QLD to record with Finn (Govinda Doyle) who played drums & bass on the record. We layed down the tracks in about 6 weeks throughout 2008, recording in an old water tank Finn had fixed up. Finns wife would cook supper for us & her new born baby whilst we worked till the young hours of dawn. I guess the idea of this album was that there would be no idea of how it would come together as a whole. I wanted these songs to have their own style. I enjoyed watching how the songs took on their own ride, most from the simplest of ideas. I wanted to work on the artwork as we did the music. A friend Caroline & I worked on different ideas, she then would take our conversation onto the canvas and create the picture for each song. So ... Lady of the Sunshine peace .... angus stone.
