In the release notes for "4 O'Clock In The Morning", Rick stated the following: "In March 1990 i was starting to write a lot more songs. I was 19 years old, done with high school, playing casually with my band THE FOREST, and still living at home.

I had this JVC "ghetto blaster" that had a mixing mic input which let you sing along with a tape. I would stay up all night sitting cross legged on my bed quietly recording little songs. I learned to play the tape back and overdub stuff through the mixing mic, recording the mix into a 2nd cassette deck. It started to get a neat thick sound after doing this over 5 or 6 times. This was my first real experiments with layering overdubs and i was digging it. I liked the hissiness of it all too at the time, and started adding radio tuner static and tv white noise playing in the background while recording, giving it all a distant mysterious sound.

I collected these 11 songs together, drew a little photocopied cover, and made this tape to give to a few friends. It was never sold anywhere so i doubt anyone really remembers this stuff exists besides me. I came across the master tape recently and enjoyed hearing it again. Its like finding an old diary from a much younger me and i thought maybe some of you would be interested in hearing it too
