was recorded in Albuquerque, New Mexico and released on the Class III Records label (why do I keep saying that - everything we've done has been released by Class III). It's an eclectic collection of songs with very different sounds, from the haunting instrumental Prince of Space (and you would not believe how many web hits our site gets just because of people doing internet searches for Prince - we ought to do one song title per album with the name of a famous artist in it, just to increase our web visibility), to the fast-paced, pop-music-style Consolation Prize, to the bittersweet La Femme Belle.
This album marked our first effort at distribution beyond family, friends, and neighbors, and we would like to thank everyone who has bought a copy so far. (No one has returned it and asked for their money back, so that's a good sign, but perhaps they're just being polite.) If you liked Petroglyph, we think you'll like SLWL
better, and EP
even better, so try some tunes from those as well. In fact, if you didn't like Petroglyph, please try some tunes from EP
instead - the songs on Petroplyph are as good as any we've done, but the production quality on EP
is much better - we have better equipment and we've learned to use the technbology better.
As usual, the booklet and art work were put together by the band. The pictures were taken either in Petroglyph National Park in Albuquerque, or in the studio. Amusing vignette: we were going to call the album something else until we saw the pictures from Petroglyph National Park and said, "Umm....let's call it Petroglyph."
