Description: Produced by David Thomas and recorded at Suma in 1998, the release languished in no man's land for more than a decade for various boring reasons. It is finally coming out on Chris Cutler's ReR Records label as a cd April 1 2013.

In 1998, the Kidney Brothers were featured performers at Thomas' Disastodrome festival at the South Bank Centre in London. Grown men wept. Women embraced David in thanks for bringing them. It was a powerful performance by two of the mainstays in the mythical 15-60-75 (The Numbers Band). This recording, made later in the year, captures the power.

"Without 15-60-75 and/or The Kidney Brothers, there would have been no David Thomas," Thomas says. "The Cle music scene would have been pointless."

The Inward City by 15-60-75, produced by David Thomas, is available from Ubutique on cd.
