After his last album, Cleveland, Ohio artist James Pequignot realized that the main things missing from his recorded works were: raw rock and roll, and other people. Long time collaborators guitarist Evan Tachovsky, and percussionist Mark Bradbourne, along with bass player and new guy, Rob Carter, came together to form Emmet. They concentrated on a lot of Pequignot's older material, which, in their new configuration, came out, not only different, but better. They also came together to help Pequignot bring to life some of his newer compositions, and it was soon time for the studio. The band decided that, to capture the emotion they were looking for, they would record most of the album in the same room together, live. They did just that, and in the tradition of bands such as the Violent Femmes, they spent no more than 36 hours from the first note to the final master. In such a short amount of time they created a work about the human condition; a piece about people and how they interact. This is an album that should not only be heard, but listened to, pondered over, and above all else, felt.
