The fan fave!
For the first time ever we have a full quality download of Penance. Whatever you have on your Ipod probably pales in comparison to the quality of this download. Not to mention we have never seen one royalty statement for this record ever so don't buy it on itunes(etc.). The bonus material included here ranges from a good portion of our sessions for John Peel on the BBC to the pre production jam tapes from the months leading up to the recording sessions and everything in between. Also included are all B sides that came on the singles for the record.
Wet and Dry was a studio in eagle rock where we holed up for a summer and spent major label money. We played all day every day for a whole summer and recorded it all day long. There are a load of good tapes from these days. Enough for a box set really so I pulled some of my favorites. The original demos were recorded at Wet and Dry before we were signed. Actually these are the demos that got us a record deal if you can believe that! 10 minute song...HA. Vernon tapes are from our old practice spot in Vernon next to the twinkie plant. There's nothing like the smell of fresh twinkie and sewage.
As previously mentioned all profits are going towards funding our tour with Killing Joke. Thank you for your support and Enjoy!
