Comments: These tracks were recorded live to tape April 13th and 14th of 1990. Dave and I had met Tom at a GC course and he came down later to SD from LA and stayed at my house and we played. Tom had not heard much of our stuff so it was a seat of your pants kind of deal for him and us also. The tracks here are live and reflect a rough but promising edge at the time. If only for the great version of Cutting Down Trees, I’m glad we played, and happier still that Dave saved the cassette tape of the sessions by digitizing it before it’s sonic demise. I don’t believe we ever saw Tom again, too bad, he’s a hell of a drummer.

I don’t recall the specific setup that Tom used but I believe it was mostly Tama with a Ludwig snare and Paiste cymbals but I could be wrong.
