"We had been stuck with an ever evolving lineup (particularly in the drummers chair) one counterproductive bassist and his replacement who got struck and disabled in a car accident. The band couldn't tour, interest was waning and our morale was sinking. Members were becoming involved in other projects and life was moving on.
We went back to Gilby's studio to record these songs with our old friend and founding member Kevin Pate on bass and a great drummer in A.D. Adams. Beat Angels always did have really good drummers. Makes all the difference in the world.
We recorded these songs, played a few shows, came back to Phoenix and that was it. The record was never completed and never properly mixed.
Brian got a job and moved to Detroit, and the rest of us moved on.
Brian lives in Detroit and is an editor at the Detroit Metro Times, a weekly newspaper.
Keith manages a pub in Phoenix and fronts a punk rock band called Glass Heroes.
Kevin plays around Phoenix in various bands.
AD plays drums in a glam revivalist band called The Crash Street Kids.
And I live in Detroit with my girlfriend and our infant son.
And that's that.
Hope you like the tunes.
PS:The version of "Terminal Love" here was recorded for "Satisfaction Guaranteed" , a "Boys" tribute record.
