So Long And Thanks For All The Shoes
This was recorded in SF With Ryan Greene at Motor Studios. A nice place to record a punk record. The title is not referring to Airwalk or Vans, it is from a Douglas Adams book called, "So Long and Thanks For All the Fish." We tend to get hit with a lot of shoes when we play so we thought it was a good title. It's not our last album. Nate from the Bosstones came by and played guitar on a couple songs. That was pretty cool. We kinda went for more of an old school sound on this record. More hardcore than the previous one. I like it. Favorite song-Desperation's Gone. Too bad about ska getting mainstream, I don't think I wanna play it anymore.
So Long And Thanks For All The Shoes
This album was recorded at Motor Studios in San Francisco, August 97.
Produced by Ryan Greene and Fat Mike
Engineered by Ryan Greene
Mastering took place at Oceanview Dig.
The music on this album was recorded in 3 days, but the vocals took forever. Every song except for Eat The Meek 180°, and All His Suits are Torn we're recorded on the first take. Sloppiness counts! All songs written by Fat Mike for Champs Elysée written by Wilsh, Delgan, P. Delanoe I think they're french.
