Tony's solo project, now on IYMI! This goes great with Eric Ellman's new project Red Delicious.
Shortly after the first Failures' Union EP, "You Know Who",
original drummer Tim Turcott left the band to move to Philadelphia. At
the time Jay Draper and I thought the band was done so I figured I'd
better follow up our wildly successful and critically acclaimed debut EP
with a solo album...on CD-R. I played the finished tracks for Jay and
he decided we needed to record some of them as Failures' Union. So with
the addition of Eric Ellman on drums a few of the songs from this
session were reworked with the full band and ended up on the first F/U
full length "Sinker" and a few others made their way onto a couple of 7"s.
I recorded these songs in the back room of a girlfriend's house using
pirated software, cassette decks and various mics and instruments I had
accumulated over the years. We lived there with a dog and seven cats.
One Percent Press offered to help re-release this, in conjunction with
our Sheets of Ten record label, roughly 6 years after I recorded it and
here it is. Enjoy.Tony
