Album notes[edit]

  • Recorded and mixed by Ty Tabor
  • Doug uses Yamaha Basses, DR Strings, Ampeg Amps and Seymour Duncan Pickups
  • Jerry uses Yamaha Drums, Vater Sticks and Paiste Cymbals

  • Misc. ramblings by Esther, Yuko, Joe and Dirk - Between some tracks on the CD there are tongue twisters in Dutch and Japanese. These were collected by the band on a European tour:
    • at the end of track 1: Acht-en-Tachtig-Prachtige-Grachten
      This is Dutch for "88 (achtentachtig) beautiful (prachtige) canals (grachten)."
    • at the end of track 3: Tonari no kyaku wa yoku kaki kuu kyaku da
      This is a Japanese tongue twister (hayakuchi kotoba) meaning "The adjacent (tonari) customer (kyaku) eats (kuu) persimmons (kaki) often (yoku)."
    • at the end of track 4: Zes-en-Zestig-Sinaas-Appel-Schillen
      This is again Dutch and means "66 (zesenzestig) orange (sinaasappel) peels (schillen)."
    • at the end of track 5: Hottentotten-Tenten-Tentoonstellingen
      Dutch tongue twister meaning "(an) exhibition of tents made by the Hottentots."
    • at the end of track 6: Chikushō, nante hidee sandoicchi da
      Japanese meaning "Damn (chikushō)! How awful (hidee) this sandwich (sandoicchi) is!"
    • at the end of track 10: Acht-en-Tachtig-Prachtige-Grachten
      See first tongue twister.
