Notable // The trio recorded an album mostly live in a friend's bedroom for free until the wee hours of the morning. Surprisingly, none of the neighbors complained or called the police.

Quotable // "It would be 2 o'clock in the morning, and I'd be up there screaming my head off," Finkner said. "The neighbors probably thought somebody was getting killed. Either they knew we were recording and they were cool with it, or they didn't really care if somebody was getting killed over there. I don't know."
