For five years Thomas Kozourek, Alex Backes and myself worked on a series of songs under the name, Birds and Bicycles. Some of these ideas go as far back to when we were 19 practicing in Tom’s Parents house. Unfortunately, we just kept recording and recording that the thought of finishing it got overwhelming. with Alex in LA, Tom in San Francisco and myself in Texas. We had to let her die.
This year for Christmas, Tommy sent us a URL to our 13 song record finished: mixed, mastered and Memories of those five years fully intact. So, here it is, in all it’s glory: Birds and Bicycles: Forget Space. 13 out of the 30 tracks completely finished. Who knows, maybe in five years we’ll finish the other half. This is a work made from love and nothing else.
