This was recorded in an upstairs room where I work. I have had a recording studio/rehearsal space up there for many years now. There were 4 different recordings of the music for Hides, I picked the best one. One of the songs was recorded during a high wind, and if you listen closely you can hear things flapping on the roof. I'll give a special prize to anyone who finds it. This was my most successful CD. Apparently people learned from it, since nothing else sold as well.

Fear And Self Loathing In Central Iowa - 2001




















1. Caution - Product Might Be Hot 01:36
2. In Crosby Park 01:47
3. The Color Of Your Eyes 03:02
4. Bang Your Bald Spot 02:16

4 songs, no waiting. There was another song recorded, but it wasn't good enough to go on the EP. It ended up on the first full length CD.

This was recorded in a couple of hours at a friend's hair salon with a borrowed 4-track tape recorder. Caution appears nowhere else, everything else was re-recorded for later CDs.
