In July 2012 Owen & The Eyeballs traveled to Leeds in a van called Yogi. The trip, fueled by doughnuts, coffee and large amounts of ale, saw the band mess about with Mexican wrestling masks and tiny keyboards, play pool badly, flip many a beer mat for hours on end and become engulfed in a hunt for a man called 'Fat Tony'. Although they never did find 'Fat Tony' they did record these 8 songs which you can now listen to with your ears.
