Album Notes
"Trieste," (2008) was recorded entirely with found object and homemade instruments. The thought behind this recording was "can you make music out of junk?" Maria Burks of CMJ Magazine writes "The Florida-based experimental indie rock band Sleeping Dogs Lie brings a whole new meaning to lo-fi recordings."

As far as the instruments, I made a guitar out of plywood, fishing string, twine, bolts for tuners and bamboo skewers for frets... man, I did a bad job with that fret job! I kinda had to play all around the "guitar" until I found a decent chord and said "sounds good here, let's make a song." I also made a big stand-up bass out of plywood and pine. I used picture wire for strings. It's really hard to keep that in tune, but it actually plays and sound pretty nice. The drum kit if metal 5-gallon drums with clear yellow vinyl shower curtains for heads... I used a big beer bucket for the kick... not very deep, but the shelf bracket with the golf ball on the end is used as the mallet and it play pretty smoothly and sounds pretty sweet. Topped it off with a silver serving tray for a cymbal. Other instruments include: Bob's Barricade reflector, egg slicer/ Corona Bottles & drinking glasses/ sea shells / bucket handle / bucket bottom for cymbal / piece of wood with string / cut up shower curtain xylophone / taped paper tube and sticks / metal bathroom waste basket...
