here's a whole bunch of shit recorded around the time we made and released Gala Mill. we were having record company dramas which held up the release of Wait Long By The River so we went to Tasmania with our mate Aaron Cupples and a van full of recording gear and set up in the mill on Gala Farm on the central east coast. so for a while there we had two finished records just sitting in the can. in reality they were on a bunch of crappy hard drives that kept crashing so we were forever enlisting the help of an ex-CIB tech guru who's job had been to trawl the deleted drives of crims and paedos and who bequeathed us with this sagely gem- "if you want to wipe a hard drive, burn it". so in the end we managed to get both records into shops in 2005 and 2006 respectively. other than that we toured a lot. all over the world with all sorts of cool bands. we toured and played with Suicide, Jesus Lizard, Dinosaur Jr, Deerhoof, Motorhead, Einsturzende Neubauten, Dirty Three, The Scientists, Sonic Youth, Mudhoney and a bazillion others all over the joint. we were on the ATP Festival record label all thru this period so we had a pretty sweet ride until the wheels fell off. as they always do eventually.
