CC put together a retrospective sometime in the late 90’s i think – limited CD release only. I have one of the covers somewhere or another around here, but i like the vibe of the master tape here. This is a pretty cool testament to the output of our old pal over the years. Pretty incredible really. Anyhow, without further ado:
This tape is rad. It starts off with a trippy Shine On Sweet Ladybug by Ethan, and is followed by an entire tape of the dudes working up a song – The Bees. That ended up getting played by the Glowbugs at Gilman. Track 24 comes around and we basically have what seems to be a people switch and CC is suddenly in. So the tape goes on and on and finally last track at the end, ‘The Bees’ all comes together.
There is quite a bit on this one here. 4 Fur Brothers mixdowns (2 songs) and several early Audio Lobotomies songs. These were the tracks Ethan and Chris gave me to listen to when i was brought into that band. This stuff is sentimental to me. And more Glowbugs!
The first side of this tape was almost all Glowbugs stuff. Some of this was used for the Glowbugs tape release, and some never saw light. The end of side 1 has the first “I Got The Boom” demos with just CC and Brandon. Side 2 starts with more Glowbugs, and then a great Couch practice. Dig it.
