kolya petrototoshkavinsky It can be said these recordings are not the best, but they show how much he has grown as an artist and learned his limits. Favorite track: I Don't Know About What Happened... (Because Once You Start Writing It All Becomes Fiction).

Noah Garthwaite I think it's great that James decided to put out these less than stellar early recordings, because it shows just how amazing a band can become and where they come from. Favorite track: Pope Alexander (Demo).

Zak Glynn James brings us some demos and B-sides from the JIGTDS era. They're sad, they're confused and they're not quite sure of themselves.
If you're a teenager who struggles with love, life and everything else, this songs will strike chords you wish didn't exist. Favorite track: I Don't Know About What Happened... (Because Once You Start Writing It All Becomes Fiction).

about

When I started Crywank I'd never played guitar before. I learnt two chords, wrote 'Welcome To Castle Irwell', 'Thomas Saunders Gangchant' and went from there. On my earliest recordings I embarrasingly americanized my voice to try and emulate my favourite musicians, and I'd record with different people through different devices (hence the different volume levels on this release). None of these songs where properly released so they've all been compiled here. They where all recorded between 2009-2012.
