Recording Notes - All Guy’s guitars were recorded at Peace of Eden Studio’s in Knysna except “Zen Balls” which was done in Durban sometime prior and “Fox Hill Lane” which was recorded in the garden of Fox Hill Lane itself. “30°12'45S26°31'53E” was recorded live at The Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre at the University of KwaZulu Natal by Jackie Cunniffe. Chris did his parts in London and magically sent them to us the following day. Madala was recorded in a garage/LP record store in Durban and Syd blew his pipe over breakfast at his place in Umbilo. Tony recorded his parts after a show at Peace of Eden and Piers did his parts for the demo version of “Fox Hill Lane” in France about a three and a half hour drive from Vence.

"Buttery champions the tangible and the timeless" - The Mail & Guardian

"Natural, organic, spiritual: Guy Buttery's music transports you to a better world." - Jon Gomm

"...extraordinary..." - Rolling Stone Magazine

"From Buttery’s slow and soulful re-interpretation of maskandi on ‘Burnside’, Kunene and Letcher’s vocals on ‘Mama’ to the chilling and beautiful saw work on ‘Martin Folk Song’, To Disappear In Place is an instrumental folk album that is never what you imagine instrumental folk would be. Buttery is out there on the fringes, doing strange and far out things with his guitar, and the only real way to hear it is to plunge your hand in and feel the water." - Mahala
