This is a recording that was made at a random band practice in the 1990s by putting a tape player next to the vocal amp in a basement. I called it a "bootleg" because that's roughly the quality. But for being terribly mixed, it's not that badly mixed and it's a fun look at my early days as a musician in a band that I miss being in even now, 20 years later. Some of this stuff is embarrassing (why I was I singing so high, so often?) and some of it surprises me by how innovative and smart it is. union jack was a lot of fun and the band practices were a weekly party--you can hear a lot of old friends cheering and chattering on these tracks.

It should be noted that Marc Schneider should be credited with most of the songwriting.
