Around the turn of the century these songs were painstakingly recorded on a TASCAM Portastudio during a year of unemployment and heartbreak in Launceston, Tasmania. Both songs took over three months to complete with countless edits and rewrites on the 4-track. At the time I remember wanting more tracks and better equipment, but looking back I think the constraints of the recording process shaped the sound in a way that now seems hard to replicate in today's era of Cakewalk and Garage Band.

Among a batch of other songs, I originally released Dogs in the Driveway and Finally to a handful of friends on a homemade cassette tape called Common Purpose. Although I have unfortunately long since lost the master tapes, the songs remain preserved in digital format. I like to think of these as pocket symphonies, not dissimilar in ethos to Phil Spector’s wall of sound, although produced on a minuscule budget and scale.
