All songs written, produced, and recorded by Matthew Darkly
This EP was recording by Matt up at the Darkly Manor with his trusty 8 track recorder. Matt wrote these songs after reading “To Kill A Mocking Bird” 6 times for work. Needless to say themes from the book appear in these songs.
These songs were recorded post first album pre second album. Matt and I got together at the studio one afternoon and knocked out 13 demos only4 of them went on to make it on the second record. I didn’t post a few because the album versions turned out more accurate to what we envisioned.
When I was digging through our archives I found a disc of The Rugs first Demo. It was marked November 12, 2005. This is The Rugs first demo with the original line up of Matthew Darkly, Eric Schuchmann, and Jimi Schuchmann. We used this demo to initially get people interested in working on an album project.
Matthew Darkly and I (Eric Schuchmann) finished up a new song for one of our bands The Moodrings a while back. We recorded this up at the Darkly Manor over a holiday vacation. Later I made a music video out of old Halloween footage we had.
