“why do we always have to do things over again? 2006” (by Alas, Alak, Alaska!)
A compilation of songs from 2004-2010 by ALAK (Jocelyn Jade Noir), starting with the first recorded song by 17-year old Noir's 2004 band 'by nite.' Also features songs by ‘Alas, alak, Alaska!’ (which included members Genaro Ulloa (formerly of Sister Crayon) and Elisabeth Wood of FANCIE) and the collaborative project ‘chorused the animals’ (which included Daniel Trudeau of Pregnant, Michael RJ Saalman of Woman Year, and Erik Woodard of Who’s Your Favorite Son God?).
Most of these songs have not been released, or were released for a short period of time (like ‘gloom prarie’ and ‘Dallop O Dallas’ which made up the half of a split 7” between Alas, alak, Alaska! and Whitman on Folktale Records and the chorused the animals EP that came out as part of Nightpass Record’s ‘Quilt Series’). Also on these recordings: Jeannie Masterflash (ALAK/Repressive Proteins), Daniel Trudeau, Michael RJ Saalman, Erik Woodard, Darin Coelho Spring (Loomfixer/Cinema Caldera), Oscar Allen Guinn IV (of Baby Birds Don’t Drink Milk/Boo and Boo Too), Joe Bengry (Zecki AM Sun), Chenelle Doutherd (Thousands), Mandy Carroll, Kaitlyn Reeves, and Andy Morin (A2B2).
