"The MGA Sessions" is an album recorded by Irish born singer-songwriter
Siobhan Fahey. It is a collaboration with music videodirector Sophie Mullerand was intended to be a soundtrack to a film which was ultimately never made. Recorded in the mid-1990s, the material was finally released independently through her own label, SF Records, in December 2005 - although it was delayed being sent to fans until February 2006 due to the passing of Siobhan's mother. The CD version was limited to a run of 1000 copies. Although many of these remained unsold as of late 2006, the disc is listed as 'Sold Out' in her web shop as of April 2008. Since Jan 2008, one can purchase it on download form from Faheys website (www.siobhanfahey.com)
Musically the album draws heavily from
indie rockinfluences and is similar in style to Fahey's work on the Shakespears Sisteralbum "#3". Contained on "The MGA Sessions" are two demos which appeared in their final versions on other Fahey releases: "The Older Sister" (from "#3") and "Suddenly" (from " Long Live the Queens!").
The album contains artwork by Robert Ryan, who is Fahey's cousin. Ryan also designed the cover art for
Erasure's 2004 album " Nightbird".
