about

This was a conceptual product. Design guidelines were "minimalistic", "dynamics exploatation" and "no big words". Purpose was to make Peach Pit music acceptable for wider audience using (at that time successfull) Lunar-technique™. We have packed our aggressiveness and neurosis into a nice and acceptable "post-rock" piece.

Album was recorded at Kozmo on a Tascam 1/2" 16-track tape recorder, mixed and mastered at home on Celeron P2 300 PC. First mix was done on analogue gear, but it wasn't Hi-Fi enough, so we transfered it to digital domain, track by track, using plain SoundBlaster AWE 32 card*. The base tracks (drums and bass guitar) were recorded live, and the guitars were overdubbed (on "bastards" we had seven layers of uni guitars - don't remeber if we used them all, though).

Thank you Bara for putting your faith in this.

*The thing about old tape recorders: sometimes they run a bit faster, and sometimes a bit slower (temperature thing?) - we ended up spending days on synching/re-digitizing tracks (at the end we couldn't figure did we played out of sync or the machine was not working properly).

Trivia about song titles:
"Moj Mikro" was the '80ties Slovenian computer magazine.
"The bastards have landed!" is from Peter Jackson's "Bad Taste".
"An open house..." is the sample text from Adobe AfterFX manual.
"Overture", "Vision" and "Substance" were named by our friends Daniela and Anđelko.
"Weather Pipes" are the pipes from which weather comes rumbling (Franjo tried to explain that to the people in Krapina).
"Sonata" = A+A+B(A).
