Why is your first album named "Homedemoh"? How do you pronounce it?

Why is your second album named "Almost live from the 6th floor."?

Why is your third album named "Grand Meridian"?

What is "Tacky Badge"?

I couldn't help but notice that you guys used the British spelling for "Grey".

Why did you guys use such a horrible picture of yourselves under the Photos section.

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 "Grand Meridian"?

It's a long, silly story, in which you would not be interested. Trust us.


What is "Tacky Badge"?

"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 cool.

Why did you guys use such a horrible picture of yourselves under the photos section.

Sadly, that's the best picture we could find. You can find equally horrible pictures in our gallery.
