all songs written by TVB
copyright 2005 Floatingbrunomusic
except Old Black Joe traditional

tracks 2, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13 recorded at New Monkey studio Los Angeles-in complete isolation like living on some beautiful Los Angeles moon. Ghosts on the keyboard.
tracks 1, 6, 11, 14 recorded in Leipzig, Germany-in a big cold flat, old style coal heating, lugging black chunks of coal up every morning in buckets
track 4 recorded in Los Angeles-then drunk guitars recorded later in blue Hawaii
track 15 recorded in Berlin, Germany-biking all day in straw hat everything a blur at top speed, writing lyrics while people scream, a cluster of dots and eyes and hearts
tracks 3, 16 recorded somewhere in the northern mountains of France-total silence day + night, a broken 4-track, pulsating brains a swirl of songs, a cheap mic, and a growing fear of being captured

all songs were produced, recorded, mixed + engineered by TVB
except Playground recorded by Anton K. Feist and Sunlight recorded by Neyzen Siyan and TVB

all instruments played by TVB
the wondeful female voice on Dogs + Perfect is Adeline Fargier

mastered by Lupo at Dubplates + Mastering, Berlin
