Release date: May 6th 2022
Needle Mythology, the label founded by music writer, author and broadcaster Pete
Paphides, is proud to announce the very first vinyl release of Altitude – the collaborative
album by ALT, an ad hoc trio of kindred spirits comprising Andy White, Liam Ó Maonlaí
(Hothouse Flowers) and Tim Finn (Split Enz/Finn/Crowded House).
ALT came together in Dublin when Tim Finn stayed at the flat shared by Andy White and
Liam Ó Maonlaí. After cementing their friendship, the three decamped to Tim’s studio in
Melbourne, where the songs on Altitude were recorded.
All the instruments on Altitude were played by White, Ó Maonlaí and Finn. The album was
originally released on CD in 1995.
