This Trio met in France (Ms. Gold Sponge, the singer, met Cantin, guitarist, opening his show in Nice mid-tour). After playing guitars together until the sun broke, the two musically met throughout Europe during the next seasons, enduring bizarre label parties and fancy affairs together with their complimentary playful and devilish attitudes. The creative affair was kept alive through Montreal's winter, where the trio was made complete---collaborating with CristobalTapia, producer/beat-maker both. The explosive energy delivered, in a fluid span of three weeks the skeleton for their record formed.
The songs are cinematic novelettes bent in morbidity with lyrics daring to create sing-song opportunity around issues typically ignored in the world of vocal composition/expression: Song topics range from Priests with Young Boys, Holocausts of everyone with the surname "Smith", Queen Elizabeth (who, after bottles of wine, mistakingly was made the stand-in for Catherine The Great, as the song outlines the legendary bestial tale of Catherine's affair with her beloved horse) and the tune CocoaPapatee, a mythical island where anarchy reigns, and "old men sleep with little girls" and people shoot multiple guns, and pollute without penalty. Through the whimsicality of the record's content, something more profound is suggested: the idea of Sociopathic Freedom Pop.
