Full Length Releases

Between The Eyes (SubPop) 1989

Producer: Jack Endino and Steve Fisk
Bass Player: Tommy Bonehead (like Kevin Whitworth, an ex-Crisis Party bassist)
Good Point: A truly brilliant debut
Bad Point: A record, (or records) which kept getting released in various forms over a two-year period.

These seminal recordings, featuring the original Love Battery lineup, first produced a single (Between The Eyes/Easter), then an Australian 10-inch vinyl EP, then a European CD/cassette release. Finally Sub Pop beefed it to an album length with the addition of three bonus tracks from the DayGlo sessions. Ron on the unusual Endino/Fisk collaboration: "I think we just had Steve Fisk come in there to help us with a couple of the mixes. We wanted Steve's wacky wizardry in there. It ended up being really fun and trippy."

Day Glo (SubPop) 1991

Producer: Conrad Uno (with John Auer)
Bass Player: Jim Tillman (formerly of the U-Men)
Good Point: A great recording experience, Ed Fotheringham artwork.
Bad Point: None

This record sounds best on headphones. Produced on Egg Studio's eight-track board, DayGlo is hardly high fidelity work, admits Jason... "and we were consciously noisy at the time." Ron recalls, "It was a wonderful experience working with Conrad Uno and John Auer." Kevin: "It's great when you can listen to a record after years and go, 'Wow, that's cool'." Collector's Note: There is a four-song European vinyl EP out there somewhere featuring two tracks from DayGlo, one song from the late-version Between The Eyes, and a Troggs cover never released elsewhere.

Far Gone (SubPop) 1993

Producer: Michael Beinhorn
Bass Player: Bruce Fairweather (ex-Green River, Mother Love Bone, Blind Horse)
Good Point: Great songs and a big-time producer
Bad Point: Ran out of money before we were able to mix it.

Fantastic hanging out in New York City for a month, as well as distracting to the recording process. If Far Gone goes out of print, we hope to remix the tracks and re-release it. Kevin: 'Those songs are diamonds in the rough."

Straight Freak Ticket (Atlas) 1995

Producer: Bruce Calder
Bass Player: Same as last record
Good Point: This was our first chance to expand musically and creatively in the studio.
Bad Point: Hmmm.......still thinking of an answer........

MP Music Previews has a review of Straight Freak Ticket and you can listen to a couple of the tracks.
