Recorded and mixed live to 2-track tape January 5-9, 2005 at Wall To Wall Recording, Chicago, IL performed by Chris Mills, Jason Adasiewicz, Nick Broste, Dave Max Crawford, Stephen Dorocke, Gerald Dowd, Ryan Hembrey, Kelly Hogan, Nate LePine, Fred Lonberg, David Nagler, Patrick Newbery, Nora O’Connor, Jen Clare Paulson, Jay Pike, Aram Shelton, Susan Voelz, Deb Stevenson.

Most songs were recorded with only a few takes, one run-through and the entire ensemble going into the control room for playback and ego-free feedback: “I’m too loud in the mix.” Shot with only one camera using the various takes (the band is perfect every take.)
