about

“This all started for us with a random opening slot at a Radioactive Chicken Heads show in Atascadero, CA. Ian found out about us through them, and was nice enough to invite us to be a part of this compilation. From there, we had about a month and a half to decide what song(s) to do, arrange, learn, and practice, and then a day to record and a week to mix before finally submitting by the deadline. We went into it not really knowing exactly what to do or how it would turn out, but things fell into place right when they needed to and somehow we got it done! We absolutely could not have done it without the help of Kevin Thayer and Patrick Hayes, who were graciously willing to provide recording/mixing services and recording space (respectively), and deal with the tight schedule we had to work with. Thank you both so very much! And of course, thank you once again to Ian Luckey; this was a new and exciting experience for The Koopas and we appreciate the opportunity you gave us! And to the all other bands, we’re stoked to be on this project with you! See you in World 8-8!”
