VIEW/BUY LP VERSION 
Rocky Votolato composed these 12 original songs late ‘96/early ’97 in Seattle. Being deeply entrenched in the northwest underground punk scene at the time, he recorded them in keeping with this philosophy. He set up two microphones in a basement and recorded the entire record live in a 4-hour period. What was captured is an intimate and organic picture of what these songs would have actually sounded like if you were listening to him play for you in a dark quiet room. No overproducing or effects of any kind – vocal or otherwise – just an unpolluted look at the songs. Though written almost 30 years later, these songs carry the same kind of darkness and quiet existential suffering expressed in Nick Drake’s albums. This understated and honest record marks the beginning of a journey for one of the best and most original songwriters making music in America today.

Originally released in 1999 on the small indie label Status Recordings, Rocky’s folk-punk debut has long been out-of-print. With Second Nature’s re-issue of the album fans will finally be able to complete their collections of his work – and for the first time it will be available on vinyl.
