The debut Charge Group album.
Written and made when the band was still a collective in flux, this record features the wondrously inventive Bree van Reyk on drums/percussion, with boy-genius violinist Jason Tampake and ex-Purplene founders Matt "Black" Blackman (voice/guitar) and Adam Jesson (bass). Blackman drums on 'Lunar Module' and 'The Contest' while Matt "Rosie" Rossetti (Purplene, The Instant) takes to the skins on 'Speakeasy Death Song'. Soon after the recording of Escaping Mankind Rosie would replace Bree as drummer, and the Permanent Four of Charge Group would then be complete.
* Marie Fox (Black's mum) plays flutes on 'Redcoats & Convicts'
