about

The year was 1995. "Fireflies" was initially to be a glow in the dark 7" with the tracks "Fireflies" and "Rocketry Is My Plan". However after pricing out the record, Level Records, at the time decided that it was just as cheap to press a CD so they went onward with that. This is a piecemeal collection that documents the first Frodus bassist transition sequence thus including even two bassists on one song namely "Yoncopin". Bass duties covered by Jim Cooper (Frodus Mark I) and Andy Duncan (who later on was in OK GO version 1.0). Strangely enough Level Records was owned and operated by Damien Kulash also of OK GO fame and he "signed" young Frodus outside of a irish pub that used to have punk shows on Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, VA called O'Carrols. The deal was made by a thinker-statue which still stands however the pub is now called Ireland's Four Courts.

The album jumps all over the place as it is a compilation of newer material the band was working on along with the aforementioned intended 7". Going from noisy post-hardcore guitars to even a smooth soprano sax solo on the track "Fireflies" by Charles Bennington, who was also the sound-engineer for the first release, "Babe", and saxophonist on the song "Bousel Room" from "Molotov Cocktail Party". There is even a narrated radio-theatre style surf track ala Frodus side-project Travelers of Tyme — tyme.bandcamp.com ! A retrospectively manic, absurd and accidental album from way back when!
