The foundations of these songs are from the same sessions that brought you 2005's 'Sun Township' CD, though this collection has a more vintage TA feel to it, with an equal mix of instrumental interludes along with 'proper' tunes. Additional recording & mixing completed thoughout the summer of 2006 with bearded wonder & TA third eye Dave Grubb at Poo-Pow Fishtown. Other recording locations include Belmar, Moorestown & West Orange NJ. Drums recorded by Dave Grubb at Meenz Mansion, Philadelphia, July 2005. K.Allens appears on track 2. J.Laughlin bass on track 9.

Info: This collection neatly wraps up all of the compilation tracks & unreleased items that have been floating around our ears during 2000-2004. We figured this was as good a time as any to organize these odds & ends and make them available to anyone interested. This sort of release spotlights alot of album contenders that never saw the light of day for one reason or another, or they were shipped off to compilations to represent the TA alongside other folks music. Overall, some pleasant suprises, some weirdos, and mostly a solid cross-section of TA music from the first half of this peculiar decade. Also included are some liner notes pontificating upon each song's identity. Enjoy.
Info: Recorded during the same era as "Bring Along The Weather", January through September 2002. Mastering & post-production by Dave Grubb at Poo-Pow during in January 2003. The CD title was born of Luke's obsession with the Olympic ice skating debacle of 2002 and late one evening in apt.709 he improvised a tune called "Inside The Skate Scandal" to detail his thoughts on it. This song is unfortunately not included on the CD at his request. Artwork by easy subCULTure graphics. * "Legal Tender" written by the B-52's.
Info: Our first "companion" release, this one being related to Kitchen USA. Subtle Citrus collects some toe-tapping originals of the era ("vacuum of the day", "perfect threat") alongside some Kitchen USA outtakes ("uptight afternoon", "rain still falls" and "spader"). We think of Belmar NJ in the winter when we hear this, since alot of these songs came from a jan.2001 session there. We also think of trying to record drums for "chase them down" in the 4ft.x4ft. kitchen of apt.2224 Philadelphia until being shut down by an annoyed neighbor. k.allens thinks safety on the cover, and yes, the man is just that damn happy.
