all songs written, performed, recorded, produced and mastered by mike o’shaughnessy

Recorded 1994-1995 in The Carolina Room, NC



recorder is the first Throats album, lovingly preserved on cassette tape. Mike employs what would quickly become his standard instrument set-up: acoustic guitar, electric guitar, organ, tin can percussion, and other noise-making devices. There was no bass. He also sped up and slowed down the 4-track often. Oh, and put the volume way up and sang from a distance. It was obviously recorded in the house he was living in. Special thanks to Gallo wine, Food Lion cookies and a lot of free time.
