The First and Only Full Studio Album " i "
was the hardest release to make - literally.
After 2 weekends of recording at Interwood Studios in Springfield, MA with Paul Interland, and recording live at the Boiler Room in New Britain, CT - the band was ready to press a CD.
Money, studio masters and artwork were sent to a "manufacturer" who advertised great prices plus distribution in Europe. 1 month later the band
called to check delivery date and got a "this phone has been disconnected" message.  3 weeks later the "manufacturer" called, "expanded" his business to Vegas and offered more CD's at a cut rate, assuring delivery in 3 weeks. The band sent more money.  5 weeks went by with no CD's. Chris flew to Vegas and with the Police they arrived at the address: an empty apartment.
Then the "manufacturer" calls, says the CD's were destroyed in the 1994 California earthquake. Chris offered more money for more CD's fast, just give an address to overnight money to.  Chris and Rob drove overnight to an address given in Michigan.
Unbeknownst to them, while Chris and Rob waited outside the “manufacturer’s” address for the police to show up, the "manufacturer" actually drove up and parked near them and went inside the building. When the Police and the District Attorney arrived, they all went inside the building and couldn't get the "manufacturer’s secretary" to open their apartment door.
Returning to their cars, Chris and Rob asked the Police to run the plates on the car, which they confirmed was registered to the “manufacturer”.
“i” CD cover is a picture of that car.
