Other members of Maxwell's former band helped out with the recording of their first album, The Onus of Sand, with Lisa Tomlins and Deva Mahal, both of Fat Freddys Drop, contributing their talents to the well-received album. The songs were recorded live to replicate the energy of their concerts.
In 2006 Little Bushman released their follow-up, Pendulum. Each of the four members took on more instrumental duties, with Maxwell playing harmonica, piano, saxophone, guitar, and tambourine, Joe Callwood playing acoustic guitar as well as his usual electric, Tom Callwood on violin, cello, and electric bass, and Cranson adding additional percussion and vocals. ~ Jody Macgregor, Rovi
