Mastering the Monkey
In this special episode we take a brief detour from Geeky Chat topics to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of our debut album, "The Master and the Monkey."
This previously recorded conversation between Dean and Luke covers the early days of Gandalf's Fist, how the album was created, why it was hidden away for so long and the glorious triumphant return of 2021's reimagined version of the record.
The 2021 acclaimed re-imagined version of this album, which had not been released when this discussion originally aired, is available NOW in a range of formats and can be obtained here!
If you want a rambling snapshot into how Gandalf's Fist came about and what those early days of "pretending to be a band" were like then look no further!
The original (terrible) version of the album can be downloaded here via bandcamp, should you be interested in listening along as we chat.
The ridiculous story Luke wrote in 2010, which is discussed in this episode relating to the "concept" of the album, can be downloaded here.
