Strange Little People was basically a Kalamazoo-based indie pop four-track club. Dave Bell, Dan Barry and I would get together, write a song, then record it the same day. One time we tried to record in East Hall and the campus police stopped us. So we went to sleep disappointed. In the morning I dressed Dan and Dave in my robes to get them in the recording mood, and the track "Dijonnaise" was born. Another time, Dave had moved into a new apartment where the previous owner had lost her cat inside of the wall. We worked the note she left into "Franny Skips Away."

Thursday Afternoon (Tracks 07-09) was a project with Dave Bell, Kristen Dana, Pete and I. We just met a few times to play, and our friend Ian recorded us. We wanted this music to have an after-school special kind of sound.
