NW/SE (1996)

During the summer of 1996, I lived in Easthampton, MA (just outside of Northampton/Amherst) with a couple guys, playing in a band called Lumber. The two guys were Todd Bourret and Ravi Jonnal, both friends from school. It was a really great time, mostly because I was just living off savings (and the proceeds from selling my ‘cello). We had rented a practice space in some abandoned warehouse. I would go there every night around 11pm or so and record music until 4am.

Originally, the album consisted of 20 unique songs, but I removed some of the tunes to keep the length of the album more
manageable. Here are some rough mixes of the 8 missing songs:
1. Cheap Sunglasses
2. Cucumbers
3. Ego Trip
4. Day Stars
5. Excuse You
6. July 16
7. Strike It Rich
