We recorded this album at Jim & Teds apartment in Quincy, MA in the Summer of 2005 with the plan to litter the state with it. We took it to our friend John Shipp to mix, because we didn't know what we were doing. Considering the source material, he really fixed us up :) We pressed 500 or 1000 CD copies of this on a bulk spool (no packaging) and we put them in cheap clear or white sleeves, and handed them out at Warped Tour & other large venues (like Avalon in Boston & Worcester Palladium) when similar genre bands were playing (like Weezer & Motion City Soundtrack toured through. Suddenly people knew our stuff at shows. This was the first time we'd ever played to people who knew the words and they weren't our immediate friends. Minds blown! I think we pressed this again for another 1000 or 1500 copies, so I believe there are maybe 2500 in existence. When myspace was cool, we had random kids send us $1 in the mail and we'd use that to cover the cost of a mailer/shipping to send them one. This was the beginning of our journey. Enjoy!
