American Analog Set
American Analog Set Rising from the ashes of a previous living room band (which included, Ken, Mark, and Lisa), what was to become The American Analog Set recruited friend Lee on bass and began in earnest in the spring of 1995. Work was begun on what would eventually become The Fun of Watching Fireworks in the winter of '95 at the Legend House in Ft. Worth, TX. The record was comprised of songs they had been working on since their inception the previous spring. The majority of the record was done in about three weeks. Recording this album was kind of like trial by fire as none of them, except for Ken, had the slightest idea how to record a song, let alone an entire album. And although dedicated to recording, the members were actually living in different cities within Texas, making recording, practicing and playing shows a more arduous task than usual. Perseverance paid off, however, and Fireworks was released in the summer of 1996 on Trance Syndicate/Emperor Jones Records.
