BTPV2: Week

by David Broyles (Dr. Pants)

Week 20:35


BEFORE THE PANTS VOLUME 2: Week. 25th (or kind of 26th) Anniversary Edition.

In the immediate wake of the release of Music For the Purple Ants, I was struck by a serious case of teenage feelings. These feelings centered around events that took place in the waning days of high school (prom, graduation, etc). I felt compelled to somehow immortalize these feelings in song IMMEDIATELY, and instead of writing a number of short songs about them, I just wrote ONE LONG SONG. I tacked on a couple of other numbers that I had completed in the (brief) time since the release of the Purple Ants album, and the Week EP was born.

I am "reissuing" this now in hopes that 1) there are still people out there who remember this cassette (and the ones that preceded/followed it) in a relatively fond manner, and might like to obtain a digital copy and 2) there are people I have met since who like what I do enough that they would feel compelled to investigate my "juvenilia" as it were.

Contains 2 bonus tracks:
"Week Suite (Live 1993)" was recorded live at Kaiser's Grateful Bean at one of my first real "gigs" ever.
"Sage & Pearls (Live 2000)" was recorded live at a Dr. Pants Mark I performance at First Unitarian Church in Oklahoma City.


released May 15, 1993
