I've recently moved from London to Glasgow and for the first time in years I'm not in an actively gigging band. I also have a lot more free time than I used to as I don't have a job and I know hardly anyone in this city. This album began as a project to kill a bit of time and to make some demos that I could use to start a band. Some of these songs will probably find their way onto the next Exhausts release, some will hopefully be used by another band, some will probably never see another recording. I haven't designated any particular song for any of these uses as of yet, although there are a few that would work better than others as Exhausts songs.
Some of these songs were written as long as five years ago and it feels good to finally have a home for them, even if it is only temporary. One or two of these songs weren't even finished when I started recording, it's a bit of a mixed bag, a bit like the archers.
I hope you enjoy this collection of demos.
