Recorded not long after we got back from our US tour in 2010, these recordings were supposed to be released before the year was out. Unfortunately things didn't go to plan, the label flaked and the recording was sentenced to a long 2 years purgatory, sitting in the bottom of the draw while we were working endlessly on what would become 'Post Ending'.
Recorded by Raul Sanchez straight to 8 track cassette in a big concrete and steel warehouse which was being used as the carpark for Kindred Rehearsal studios here in melbourne, these songs are raw. Really raw. We experimented with all sorts of stuff on here.. double, even triple tracked vocals, pitch shifters, phasers, chorus and over the top fuzz. It's over the top but we think it's awesome.
Rod saw release on the Vacant Valley 'Living in a Shadow' compilation and Alcohol was released on Amphetamine Reptiles 'Dope, Guns & Fucking in the Streets vol 13'.
