In June 2010, after a second fifteen-year silence, there were still more fresh Distractions. Original guitarist/principal songwriter Steve Perrin flew into the UK from his home in New Zealand, vocalist Mike Finney travelled from across the Pennines and bass player Nick Garside from L.A. They convened in Liverpool, joined by Nick Halliwell, of Occultation label-mates The Granite Shore and drummer Stuart Mann. Another Occultation label-mate, Richard Turvey of The Wild Swans, engineered the session and also contributed piano and organ.

After meeting up on the first morning, with no rehearsals whatsoever, the band clicked instantly. By the end of that first day they'd recorded pretty much complete instrumental tracks to three songs (with Mike singing guide vocals), without even a click track getting in the way. These three songs now form The Distractions Come Home 12" EP, due for release on Occultation in November 2010.

The three songs are two previously unheard Perrin numbers, Lost and Nicole, plus Oil Painting, contributed by Halliwell, a long-time fan of the band.
