    Needle Mythology, the label founded by music writer, author and broadcaster Pete Paphides, is proud to announce the expanded CD reissue 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.
    This deluxe reissue of Altitude has been remastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios. The newly remastered version features five additional bonus tracks from the original sessions. Three songs are previously unreleased in any form. The remaining two were only available on the 1995 Japanese CD release.
    “Some of the best singer-songwriter driven alternative rock of that fertile period.”
    Rock & Roll Globe, NYC Like King Creosote and Jon Hopkins’ Diamond Mine or Alison Krauss and Robert Plant's Raising Sand, Altitude captures an unrepeatable moment of divine serendipity.” Pete Paphides, Needle Mythology
