In the summer of 2020, after a 14-year hiatus since Yammer was packed into boxes, Keith was imprisoned by the pandemic lockdown, and started recording again, with three friends, using the internet to exchange audio.
Reconnecting with his old First Night With the Indians bandmate, Keith started a remote collaboration with David Tomlinson. David had an idea to record an anthology of an imaginary 80s band, as it progressed through several phases — starting with a rough and ready punk debut EP.
They started the project by basing the EP on four old unused First Night With the Indians songs. Keith re-recorded them from scratch between August and October, and David completed the vocals in December.
David continues the project solo, as Leaf Gatherers.
