Movie about Serge Morattel & REC Studio-the delivery room of Challenger, Wonder & the CD ep. You'll see a bit of the recording of Challenger from 1m24s til 1m57s. -The man himself, Sergeï at 1m 31s -Roderic, Taverne & Phil recording together at 1m42s -One of the two venerable Akai direct-to-disk multitracker at 1m29s -Me screaming in the hallway at 1m24s. Wow! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRZD_UzUIJY
Challenger was recorded in the Spring of 2001, just before embarking on a US tour with Isis the band and Thrones. The album came out March 2002 on Hydra Head Industries. In 2010 Swiss label Division Records issued a limited edition on orange 180gr vinyl, gatefold sleeve. 7 remaining copies can be purchased by dropping a line to [email protected]

A full show at Le Romandie - Lausanne just resurfaced on youtube, courtesy of Mr. Sergey Ulyanov, also known as SLUDGE bass player. It's harsh and fast (way too fast at times, thanks to the silly dude behind the kit) but a good representation of the band in 2008. There's even a couple of unreleased songs and an intro that we forgot ever existed! Enjoy.
