about

Following the band’s self-titled debut released in Sept 1994 and Nassau released in March 1995, The Biz was the band’s third record in just over one calender year. It was recorded at John McEntire’s own Soma Studios. The instruments were mostly recorded live in only three days. The vocals were recorded by Prekop alone in five days. On Nassau the band experimented heavily with signal processing and on The Biz they continue that experimentation using less common forms of processing, more sparingly. They used a Roland Space Echo, EML-101, and ARP 2600 as both instruments as well as manipulators.
