ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Presumably the first endurance sports-related album released of which we are aware, "Gotta Get to Kona" may very well wind up being the most influential endurance-sports-parody album of 2010. Touching on themes ranging from racing equipment to international racing and travel to personal hygiene, and dabbling in such musical genres as rock, blues, country, pop, and R&B, "Gotta Get to Kona" is a must-have for any dedicated endurance sports athlete. Athletes will quickly relate to the band’s tales of chafing incidents, training debacles, and race embarrassments and find themselves whistling the melodies long after taking off the headphones. Recorded at tempos conducive to running and cycling training, these tracks are sure to get the blood pumping and the feet moving.

All songs were written, performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered by the members of the band in a variety of basements. The songs were written during races, during recovery from races, on long international flights, in bars, and in the shower. The band as a whole has completed (or almost completed, in some sad cases) hundreds of road races, adventure races, and triathlons. Given the number of hours spent in physical distress it is no surprise that part of the band’s coping mechanism is to write ridiculous songs. Songs that have, incidentally, (and quite surprisingly) encouraged visits by visitors from more than 40 States and 25 countries covering six continents during the first month following their release. Apparently the obscure endurance music movement is larger than originally thought. Or there are simply no alternatives to what we bring to the table, musically speaking. Either way, you can say that you knew us before we became an international sensation.
