Recorded in the summer of 2000 over two three-day stretches at A Sea Of Shit in Colwood, B.C. by Scott Henederson with Tolan McNeil. Sort of mixed by Ford, and then Mastered by Hugh McMillan at Media Magic. All songs written by Ford Pier and published by Trite Motifs.

Originally made available as a free download from the first www.fordpier.com. Don't click on that link, I don't know what the assholes who snaked the domain name did with it. One hundred burned copies (closer to seventy, probably), hand-numbered with sleeves made out of macaroni boxes, given to friends and sold at Red Cat Records or at solo shows at The Sugar Refinery once I realized I didn't have a hundred friends. Thanks then and now to Carolyn, Tolan, Garth, Jerry Jerry & The Sons Of Rhythm Orchestra, Ellen Georgina, Pamela Ruth, Ingrid Kristeen, Thomas David Bruce, Phester & Kitten, Annie & Matt, Sylvia, Ivy, and Anna, Andy Kerr, James Walton and Storm Brewing, and eventually also to Andrew Pearson for unflagging championing of this album.
