Why is your first album is named
"Homedemoh"? How do you pronounce it?
Homedemoh is another spelling for "Home Demo". We added the 'h'
at the end to make it a palindrome. (Spelled the same backwards
as forwards). Isn't that clever? Maybe not. In any case, many
people read it as Home-demon and assume that we are some sort of
death rock band. We are not a death rock band, not that there's
anything wrong with that.
Why is your second album named
"Almost live from the 6th floor"?
While we were making the coffee house circuit in
San Francisco, we had amassed a set of songs.
We decided we should recorded a subset
of those songs to tape.
We wanted the recordings to be simpler than
Homedemoh which had many overdubs. We also wanted a live feel to it but
recording live in a coffee-house would have been much too complicated
and certainly too much work.
So we opted to record that album in our 6th floor apartment with no overdubs.
Eventually we had to lay down some overdubs since we ran out of microphones.
Thus, "Almost Live From the 6th Floor".
"6th Floor" only took a week to record, as opposed to "Homedemoh" and "Grand Meridian"
each of which took a year and half.
Why is your third album named
It's a long, silly story, in which you would not be interested. Trust us.
"Tacky Badge" will be our next album comprised of
the new, original songs off "Almost Live", re-recorded,
combined with extra songs from "Grand Meridian"
that didn't make it onto the album.
I couldn't help but notice that you
guys used the British spelling for
"Grey". Are you guys English or
(God forbid) Canadian?
No. We are all American, more specifically Californian.
We used "Grey", as opposed to "Gray", because it looks
