about

In 97 I had to sell my 8 track and studio to keep my car on the road. 1, 2, 3, AHHHHHHHHHHHH.
Anyway a couple of years and a few guitars later I bought my first Les Paul and SG, both Gibson and realised I'd been playing the wrong guitars.
I had just released Mile Wide Spaces.
When I started using Gibson my guitar playing made sense and the stuff I had been doing over the last couple of years from 97 to 00 became stale.
My relationship with the SG was short (I sold it so I could go to Paris to see Iron Maiden on the Brave New World tour, my heroes were back!)
I never recorded anything official with it, but there is some magic in these little recordings which i made with the help of a porta studio by Tascam which i borrowed from Neb at the time which was either Lanark Grammar property or Universal Connections property.
This was around the end of my romance with hallucinogenics.
This album is like forgotten songs and demo's for Animated Pill.
Although some of the songs here are better than what was officially recorded.
Of all the stuff I have salvaged from tape, I think this little selection of songs has something really deeply ingrained in it that is a part of me.
what's more important is that some of the lyrics were never actually written. They were done on the spot.
