Artists: Mark Hardgrave, Bryan Helm and Bret Moreland (BrotherSync) Also featuring Robert ? on tracks 6 & 7 (from a session I did not attend).

Comments: I met Bret online via posts to the Loopers Delight mailing list we both received at the time.in 1998.I was soon introduced to Mark who worked with Bret and played some music on the side. Over the next couple of years we did a few jam sessions with loopbased themes of mostly guitar and key synthesizers with programmed percusssion and effects. Bret recorded these musical outings, compiled, mixed and manufactured them into the Expect Delays CD.I think the disc comes across as fun to listen to, with a few twists. BrotherSync is named after a function on the Echoplex Digital Pro a looping device once manufactured by the Oberheim company, now made for the Gibson corporation.
