Super Furry Animals' Gruff Rhys releasing album with TV repair man
Super Furry Animals' Gruff Rhys is set to release a collaboration album with Brazilian TV repair man Tony Da Gatorra.

The album will be named 'The Terror Of Cosmic Loneliness' and will get a limited release this July. The pair will also play UK live dates this summer.

Da Gatorra, with whom Rhys has played live with before, has invented the Gatorra instrument – a guitar-style instrument that also features a synthesiser and a drum machine.

The pair will play live at Cardiff's Clwb Ifor Bach venue on July 29, at Camp Bestival on July 30 and London's Field Day on July 31.

Speaking of the build-up to a gig the duo played in Sao Paulo, Rhys said: "We spent five days rehearsing a set of songs to play live at the venue – our only shared language was music itself so there was no small talk, just intense concentration on the music.

"On the final day, as the rehearsals had been so productive, we hooked up some recording equipment and took about five hours out to make this record. We recorded several live takes of each song then chose the best versions. I added a harmony vocal overdub on two songs, otherwise it’s pretty much what we recorded at the time.

"Upon returning to Cardiff I took the songs to producer Kris Jenkins' studio whose excitement for the album and general encouragement was infectious. Armed with five flasks of strong coffee, 75 sticks of gum and a bank of vintage compressors we mixed 'The Terror Of Cosmic Loneliness' at extremely loud volume in one epic 12-hour session."
