Our July 2005 Debut album and DIY at it’s finest! It was then we finalized the line up as a three piece act! Chris on Drums and John on guitars, and Mike on Bass/Vocals making some Stoney grooves.

-

This was an epic path of calling in all Favors! And favors did we need!

-

So we started tracking the first part with producer Doug Grean who produced and engineered at Softdrive Records, Scott Weiland's studio in Burbank, California.

-

This was during the Velvet Revolver days and the VR studio was the best vibe and space and start to the process. They had a floor to ceiling wall of platinum records, huge live room and stage and props to film a movie.

-

Funny thing about favors tho, they don’t last as long. So the fun recording vibe turned rushed and then just suddenly cut off one day. Doug had to go on tour tracking VR live shows and we were left with a hard drive with an unfinished album.

-

Call it coincidence but that was also when we would be paying him for the day and seeing and hearing him sigh! We already knew our time was limited! 🤣😂 So do NOT count on favors, but just enjoy the ride!

-

I’ll never forget the day I was tracking vocals, and VR was sponsored by Red Bull, so I was dipping into the little fridge and drinking way too many and got super sick and had to cut the day short! Haven’t had a Red Bull since!

-

But when leaving for home, my phone was blowing up, missed calls and texts! This was when and how I found out about Dimebag’s murder on stage in Ohio!

-

So left with a hard drive of partially finished tracks, we tapped super talent Dave Domingues to finish tracking and mixing at the amazing Paramount Recording in Hollywood for some more parts as well as Dave’s Studio for mixes!

-

Then the final touches of Mastering back at Paramount with the legendary Bill Dooley (Mastering and Resting in Peace)

-

Photo shoot and cover art by Ronan Spelman with Mike’s Art Direction to try and make a TOOL AEnema style animated cover! BTW, Not affordable unless you’re making TOOL money and pressing millions! So half the concept was completed! And today we have an animated gif! 🤘🏼

-

Once that album was completed, it was all about the shows all over the west coast until the first line-up changes began and we welcomed Kevin in as a temporary fill in on the drum throne!

-

That temporary "sit in" lasted all the way to the second album a decade later. Time flies way too fast when you’re having more fun, and caring about fun more than finances! 🤣
