Dane Mills (former band member): Most of the songs were recorded piece by piece instead of as a full band. This was because we forgot to bring a mixer that would have enabled us to record live off the floor. So the record didn’t end up having the energy that the live show did. I remember we spent quite a few days just recording the drums for “Submarine”. Making sure each beat was exactly on time and using a click track. “No Cars Go” started with Win and I on bass and drums, then everything else was added after that. “In The Backseat” was originally supposed to be on the EP, but the version we recorded wasn’t up to par.
