During their late 2004 tour promoting the Shake the Sheets album, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists stopped over at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. There, the band -- along with Ryan Massey of Communiqué -- recorded full-band versions of two songs featured on 2003's Tell Balgeary, Balgury Is Dead EP and one that has become a staple of the Pharmacists' live sets.

"Six Months in a Leaky Boat" and "Suspect Device" are covers, originally written and performed by Split Enz and Stiff Little Fingers, respectively. Sharkbite Sessions is only available for paid download from the iTunes Music Store, using the Emusic.com service, and Amazon.com.
