In 1997, Cincinnati noise-pop group Martian Electric had decided to break up. Steve Libbey was moving to Atlanta, Mark Shepherd and John Stanton to Chicago. However, they had free recording time awaiting them at Cincinnati’s fabled Ultrasuede Studios courtesy of engineer Dave Davis. With only a handful of songs ready, they plowed through the set then improvised for hours. Overdubs followed at True Tone Studios with Dave True. This album shows what Martian Electric could have become if their lives hadn’t pulled them in separate ways.
