The Climb To Heaven Has Too Many Stairs (The Lost Tapes)

by Napalmpom



When the music industry won't mythologize your B chords and songs about Gladiator sequel spec scripts, might as well self-mythologize, right? We recorded this in January of 2013 before our original singer, Ian Day, moved to the UK, in order to capture what we'd done until that point. I think the music was mostly recorded live off the floor in one day, with the next day spent on vocals, overdubs and noise.

None of these songs are new, as they all ended up on The Unconditional Love Of Napalmpom, on the Some Weird Sin compilation or on our split with Public Animal, in some re-recorded form, sometimes with different lyrics, but they are presented here with original titles and played unintentionally faster and looser and with less harmony vocals or what music industry bigwigs might call "talent."

Pay what you can! All proceeds will go to paying off the mixing/mastering of this, but we also understand not everyone can afford to throw money around right now. We'd rather you had this for free than not have it.
