All these songs were written in between Summer of 2011 and Fall of 2012. Most everything was recorded in Fall of 2012, in James' parents' basement in Germantown, MD on a TASCAM DP-008 8-Track Digital Portastudio. Finishing touches were recorded at The Lab in Alexandria, VA. Thanks to James Haitchwai for letting us borrow the recording equipment.
This record was originally supposed to be half of a split with Bouncing Betty (bouncingbetty.wordpress.com
), our good friends from Baltimore, MD. If you haven't heard of them check them out! They're a fast, gruff, straight-to-the-point punk rock band with a sound channeling inspiration from The Clash, Rancid, and Crass. Also, smart, politically charged lyrics.
Their demo, which you can download at the aforementioned link, was supposed to be SIDE A to our SIDE B, but technical, logistical, and personal hiccups on our part prevented us from putting out our recordings at the same time as theirs. So now you're just left with two awesome records to listen to.
