about

The Throats' third album reveals the inner psyche (is there an outer psyche?) of a busboy stumbling through the alt. landscape of mid-90s America, wandering in the soft glow of a pre-internet dusk. A diorama in a wine jug constructed with sticky fingers and existential ennui. Recorded in early 1997 in The Carolina Room, Calabash, NC.

credits

released July 1, 1997

The Throats: Martyrs guitarist leaves Long Island for Calabash, North Carolina; starts solo project as the Throats. The lost years follow from 1994-1997. Records three and a half albums; self-destructs, returns to LI, continues recording. Moves to Oregon; issues swan song in 2010. After 15 years, it's enough already. The Throats were Mike O'Shaughnessy.
