When Things Seem So Superficial, I Like To Step Back, Grab Hold Of Myself And Shriek In Delight

BLAST FROM THE PAST

Keeping with old music that I recorded with friends back in the day, here's a set of five tracks from a 'band' started with long time friend and correspondent K. Buttrey (1999 - 2001). It started off simply enough as jam recordings on a cassette and evolved to, well jam sessions with some better recording equiptment. We produced what could be called 3 albums, even though they are more our personal recordings of the sessions than anything else. The following tracks are off of the last album we did.
The last track was concieved and recorded in one day, but had many takes, unlike the other recordings which are all one-take-wonders. However, I must admit, of all the recordings, this is the most solid and closest representation of the directioin we would have went if we continued to play together... but who knows, we're still young.
