The Garage Sessions - Vol. 1 (2004)
In the winter of 2004, when we decided to work with producer Gary Mallaber on the upcoming album, we had to send him some songs to see which ones he was interested in helping with. To do so, we set up our instruments and PA in Neil’s garage and recorded a live demo.
It was a mix of established songs, some newer songs, some we were playing for almost the first time ever, and some jams that we just recorded that ended up becoming songs. We recorded live via a stereo mic direct to minidisc. It’s fun for us to listen to now because it’s really indicative of our live sound at the time.
