falling backwards
someplace (but not this place)
this trip
so unfair

We thank everyone who has helped and supported us over the past 3 years -- everything from listening to our dubbed-over cassette demos to letting us sleep on your floors and eat your home fries. We sincerely appreciate it.
- Steve, 2001

Garage Sale was our last release, released July 2001 on Shelflife Records. It's a CDEP + remixes with 3 new songs, 5 others released elsewhere or not at all, and 7 remixes donated by friends.

The 3 new songs were finished mostly by miracle. One took almost a year of fiddling, the other 2 were done nearly at the last available minute -- and you may hear it. Of the other 5, 1 was an unused mix from the s/t album, 2 were bonus tracks from the Japanese release of the album, 1 was from one of the "Carafate Roads" series of 7" compilations on Motorway records, and the last was released on Shelflife's "Pretending To See The Future" OMD tribute CD.

This release is the complement of the album -- basically everything else.
