If you just want to listen most of them are in this playlist - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...5DD896CDD136D8

If you want to download them, they're pretty easy to find online via google.

This is a Call and For All the Cows have not surfaced. This is a Call may have been a new song at the time of the recording of S/T. There's definitely an old version of FATC, but it's never surfaced.

Around 2004, a couple of "tapes" surfaced online. Initially it was only one song, Mountain of You, which leaked, but shortly after the leaker leaked the whole shebang. A tape of songs from around 1993, along with some Pocketwatch stuff and some rough mix S/T songs, surfaced, as well as an earlier session from a project called Allister Lob, which were all instrumentals.

The '93 stuff was this:

Mountain of You
Big Me
A+ET
Exhausted
Goof Grief
Weenie Beanie
Floaty

The Allister Lob stuff, 1992-ish:

Colonel Sanders outtakes (not a song, just the actual KFC Colonel Sanders flubbing his lines for a commercial. Apparently the tape started with this for some reason, but whether Dave did it or someone else, I don't think anyone knows)
Very early Podunk
Early Make a Bet
Unknown song
How I Miss You (this is the actual track that ended up as a b-side of the I'll Stick Around single with vocals added)
Another unknown song

Allister Lob features Dave on guitar and drums, Mikey Dees on guitar, and Lisa Grohl on bass.

I'll Stick Around didn't leak until... what was it, last year? Apparently Barrett Jones played it years ago on Seattle radio but no one ever noticed.

This past March, in fact! It was featured on some radio stream included on the recently updated Laundry Room Studios website.

It's a shame there isn't a website out there with all the details of these, with which recordings are available.....

OH WAIT.



If you just want info on the S/T tracks though, 'For All The Cows', 'This Is A Call', 'X-Static', 'Wattershed' and 'Oh, George' are the only tracks without an earlier surfaced demo. That's not to say they don't exist of course, they certainly do.

Shameless self promotion here Btw, your new site looks so good. Well done! (haven't had a chance to mention it before)
