RECORDING NOTES 2008

When we first signed to Mad Rover Records we wanted to continue to record with Greg Freeman, with whom we were very comfortable. It turned out that Mad Rover, having an in-house recording studio with Enharmonik, was not into the idea of paying for these recording sessions elsewhere. At the time, Enharmonik was located in the basement of John Baccigaluppi's home - something that made us initially uncomfortable as his wife Maria was sometimes home upstairs and we were sure she hated our racket. Sessions went fast though, and with 16 tracks (over Greg's 8 at the time) we could play with more overdub ideas. John also had strong ideas, and gave us more direction and questioned our intent a lot more than Greg ever had. Doug Roberts' horn parts really had John skeptical, but I think we won him over on that one later! Everything seemed fine until we asked for rough mixes and received some tracks that John obviously had knocked out really fast - but we got all up in arms as they sounded nothing like we were intending. It seems pretty funny looking back, especially after recording hundreds of bands myself and still maintaining a very strong friendship and business partnership with John, but we were all bent out of shape about the sound of the rough mixes. Anyway, real mixes continued and everything went well, although I always tried to turn my bass up. In retrospect I think we put too many songs on the album. Mad Rover's pre-Rough Trade P&D people (who soon bailed on all of us) kept wanting us to be a punk band, which led to "Every Pretty Girl" and "Dog Sauce" being included - they could have been left off. With a little more focus this album probably could have been better - and that's exactly what happened next...

- Lawrence "Larry" Crane, Vomit Launch.
