Liner Notes
This record is a testament to the efforts of a small group of artists and musicians living, creating, and performing in and around Murfreesboro, TN. While not all of the bands on this record are from Murfreesboro, those that aren’t went out of their way time after time to visit our town and include themselves in our community. This record is in NO way meant to be a “definitive” document of Murfreesboro’s entire musical spectrum during this time. There were tons of other bands, communities, scenes, etc. going on at the same time; this was just our small corner of what was happening. Furthermore, in the time it has taken to get this record realized and into your hands, many great new local bands have sprung up and a few great new touring bands have made our town a regular stop on their tours. This only goes to show that the task of documentation is never truly complete; despite this, we still feel it’s worth it. As I write this, many of the people behind the music and photographs on this record have moved on from Murfreesboro, and almost all of those who haven’t are making plans to leave. That is largely inconsequential however as we all have faith that there already are and will be many more individuals in this town and other towns interested in facilitating a progressive DIY community of art and music. While we are very proud of what we accomplished in Murfreesboro, we are not special and our town is not unique. We hope that if nothing else, this record demonstrates that with effort anyone can find an audience and express themselves regardless of “talent”, credibility, or experience.

Thanks to everyone involved, all bands and all DIY houses everywhere!
