A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THIS ALBUM:

Recorded on a Fostex cassette 4-track machine.

I think I had one mic, one guitar, a drum machine, and a Mirage sampling keyboard. I recorded some of it in LA before I moved, and the remainder here in Portland. Toki Wolf played some bass, John Bell did the artwork, Mark Smith did the graphic design, I even got Kim to sing on a couple of songs.

I have strong memories of being in our freezing apartment in NW staring out the window onto Irving St. working on this.
