Unfit to Practise

Fitness to Practice is a 2004 album produced for charity by Amateur Transplants (Dr Adam Kay and Dr Suman Biswas). 10% of the profits from the album sales go to Macmillan Cancer Relief.

There is now a newly remastered version of the album available with two bonus tracks, "Northern Birds" and "What I went to SKL 4". The album is published on the Friday Audio label of The Friday Project.

The album contains extremely strong language and therefore, according to the official website, "should not be bought for an elderly maiden aunt."
