Joan of Arc (1998)
unnamed instrumental (at end of "joan of arc") - remnant of short-lived notion to have an alter-ego band called "red lolte" (zak on drums, alan on keyboards, mim on vocals).
long long long - probably the best overlooked song by the beatles. george was the darkhorse. i think we got a couple of the chords wrong, but it's one of our favorites.
B-Sides & Compilations (1998)
blue-eyed devil - heard rumour of our friends, soul coughing, doing "words" so we thought we'd return the gesture. despite the odd experience it was, opening for them for a month, we are greatly privileged to be friends with those guys.
B-Sides & Compilations (1999)
back home again - mark kozelek asked us to do this for the john denver trib. laid down a bunch of instruments, but narrowed it down in the end. the vocal on a john d. song is elusively difficult and clever. learned a lot doing this song.
Songs from the John Peel Session (1999)
liar - part of the '99 peel session we did. zak played piano. we did a version of "last breath" on that session, but it was accidentally erased - very uncharacteristic of the famed BBC engineers.
