Album Notes…
After the break-up of Xing in 1998 and prior to the official formation of the j. pyramid in 2001, there was a project dubbed “Xing2” (never really had an official name) consisting of George Cowdrey (drums), Mike Chomos (bass) and John Templeman (guitar/vox). The music on this original cassette was written by the band in 1999/2000 with these actual recordings being tracked in early 2000 (the final two tracks were recorded on 4/15/2000).

Some of these songs ended up appearing on the j. pyramid’s first EP, Tradition Kills Intelligence; some were early ideas for what became songs; some never materialized as songs; and some did but were recorded in later forms and/or never released. Any way you slice it, this tape represents a moment in time of a young band, gelling together, jamming and working out ideas. There are no vocals, but it’s cool to just zone or rock out to.
