"...closer to the anarchic spirit of Gang Of Four than any of the recent spate of dance-rock imitators." - Tris McCall, Jersey Beat
"This sounds like Devo on methamphetamines." - Gerry Griffin IV
No Authority Direction, or Control was recorded during the Summer and Fall of 2007 at Hypersnakes in Edison, NJ with the precocious Daniel Schlett (tracks 1, 3, 4 and 6 - with an assist by the cantankerous Carson Kopp) and at Temple of Tuneage in Verona, NJ with the venerable Gerry Griffin IV (tracks 2 and 5).
The album was mixed during countless beer soaked nights by Schlett and Griffin, and was given a final volume adjustment by Adam N. Copeland at The Red House in Edgewater, NJ. Album art from conception to painful labor is also the work of Adam N. Copeland. All photography is courtesy the NASA Earth Observatory.
