This album is a composite of two different recordings. One being from the 4th of July 2007 in my basement and recorded by Andy Caffrey on his tape machine. We threw a BBQ and made a record at the same time. Everyone at the BBQ played or did something on the record at some point. Originally released on a split cassette with Ed Gray.
The other recording was a bootleg of a live show that same year recorded by "Taper" Tim Jamison. These songs were added to this collection to represent songs that were prepared for the 3rd full length but unfortunately never got recorded in the studio.
These are all of the final recordings with Clayton Schuneman on bass before he left the band to join the professional world.
This would also, unbeknownst to us, be the first and last time I ever recorded music with my father Jeff Ward on trumpet before he passed away.
Imperfect for sure but a solid record of time spent between brothers and family who loved each other. Never to be duplicated.
Tape on.
