The Scoop: Recorded in Jan 1997 by Steve Eyres @ his house studio. This is the first Janet Theory demo.
These songs were slated to become part of the upcoming CD, but after listening to the songs over & over again they decided that they were not up to par.
So back to the drawing board they went. With close to 40 new songs to choose from, It took them a little longer than anticipated.
This is a collection of the rejected songs in their rawest form. But you can’t get more real than raw, so this demo cassette still holds strong as one of their best releases to date. Their original sound went unnoticed generally, but 5 years later, their style would dominate the music scene as the so called “emo” style, but the band had moved past that sound years before it broke out
That is a good sign for a band to be ahead of it’s time.
The demo was known for it’s return to their underground roots.
