The 8th album is a return of sorts to the classic Throats sound of the 90s. Songs about fossils, robots, UFOs, Walt Whitman and love. Recorded on a Korg Pandora PXR4. Written, performed, recorded and mixed in the bedroom by Mike O'Shaughnessy in Portland, OR.

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.
