about

Recorded at the Doomnest in 2007 by the Joester.
A casual session of one-take tries, the guitar fell out of tune on the first song and I didn't know to adjust, this was my first time recording songs that I'd written.
The original had more covers including the Decemberists and Hole... I omitted them for this, c'mon! that's totally embarassing!
Rock on 4ever
