about

Last summer, I shook hand to seal the promise to record an album of Mitch’s song and put it out as a cassette to raise money in order to buy him a passport. Mitch has been one of my best friends for many years and we toured together a bunch of times, but he never made it out to Europe. I was drunk and forgot the end of the evening but not the promise itself. His songwriting has been a major inspiration all these years.

Every winter I go through the month of january trying to work on my personal skills as a part of Fun-A-Day. This year I recorded covers in my room, on a microphone I found in a pawnshop on that same tour. All song by Mitch, and all of the mistakes are mine. #1 from Frith in a frog, #2 from the Long Way Home, #3 from Kyle Hall gets a nosebleed, #4/5/7/8 from Ford in his flyver, #9 from Inside/Out and #6 & 10 from the upcoming album that will be released on Bus Stop Press and Lost Cat Records.

The cover is a drawing I made for a tattoo Mitch, myself and our friend Garrett all promised each other to get, based on a line from « Giving Up Party ». I’ll make the cassettes shortly. Take care & Stay Gold.
