This is the first of 3 EPs of some older songs from quite a ways back that we dusted off and recorded so you fans could enjoy them in the comfort of your own home. That last song is a new one though and it's just a little window into the "Gabriel's been left alone in the studio madness." This is why the crowd is encouraged to shout "SHUT UP GABE!"


released May 19, 2015

All songs by: Brian Wickliff on bass and vocals, Gabriel Jones on guitar, vocals and sampler, Matt Butler on drums.
Except song 4: Gabriel Jones with all the samples (extra planetary electromagnetic space echo sounds captured by satellites and an obstreperous bass growl loop at the end).
