about

This is Clockpole's first recorded performance. These four tracks are actually one long performance and should be played consecutively.

Initially, I imagined Clockpole as being a one time thing. I wanted to get as many people together as possible and crowd into the KTRU studio and do a live performance with no rehearsals. Clockpole was supposed to play around November or December 2009 but the date was pushed back by Local Show DJ Ian Wells several times because of circumstances which were out of his hands, essentially, a combination of the Christmas break and a revamping of the KTRU studio. We ditched the idea to only play once on KTRU and began playing live at house parties and clubs but as soon as a date opened up at KTRU, we hit the studio and played.

Clockpole did not rehearse before this performance. We just waited for Ian to tell us when we were on the air and we went for it. The only preparation we had was Justin Clay and myself wrote down a list of Houston bands and took a line from each of those bands songs and that became the lyrics to this performance. The only exception to this is Bryan Hayes singing his song "Spanish Trails" which we somehow segued into.
