A collection of unreleased tracks recorded at various times over the history of the band from 2005-2009.
The first three tracks we did at The Hive with Colin Stewart, and we were extremely happy with how they turned out (it would have been awesome to do a whole album with him!). Vanderhoof opened a lot of our sets over the last year we were a band and it's still one of my favourites!
The next five were done with Shawn Cole and his team at a studio in East Van...we liked the songs and played them all live but something felt like it was missing at the time - we were trying different styles on these songs and maybe we needed another crack at getting them down in the studio...
Chasin' a Ghost and No Horses were both recorded in our jam space...I think both were written back in the Mud River days (!)
We loved playing Chasin' live, and it was funny each time because a lot of the audience definitely thought they were about to hear Joe Cocker's version of "A Little Help From My Friends" (the intro DOES sound very similar, hahaha)...we never got it recorded right but it's nice to put out this version. No Horses is just a sketch that we never played live, but fun to hear it years later!
Hope you enjoy these!
