Here is our one and only album. Too bad we decided to make such a BAD cover. Well by the time this album was being recorded, Rancid was recording And Out Comes The Wolves. Musically both of our bands were heading in the same directions without even knowing it. I think this pissed off Lars, though he never said that. Commitment is much more of a varied effort and we were not afraid to stretch ourselves at all. In fact I think this album was/is better than anything that The Forgotten had recorded. The difference between Slip and The Forgotten was that Slip had problems touring because of drugs and instability with drummers. With The Forgotten we had great record labels behind us and the willingness of all four members to hit the road and work hard. I enjoyed playing in both bands a great deal, but always felt that we left allot on the table in Slip. Live.....we were THE BEST in San Jose. No doubt! I know that sounds cocky and if you know me, then you would know that I am not a cocky person. We would draw all types of folks to our shows. We were fun and very energetic on stage. We had personality and we were not afraid to show it. Media darlings?? Oh yeah. We were in every music publication in the SF Bay Area every month during our 5 year existance. This did lead to allot of petty jealousy from other bands, but we were humble and got along with every band around. We had a true music scene and we would play with just about everyone. We opened many times for Agent Orange, The Dickies, DI, as well opening for Chaos UK, The Adicts, Anti Nowhere League, Goldfinger, The Meatmen, Electic Frankenstein, Swingin Utters, Rancid and many others as well as headlining shows in the SF Bay Area and touring. I am VERY proud of my time in this band. They were my brothers! Oh and the cover? Those are REAL tattoos. I have mine on my arm, the lip tat looked like they hurt too much. Yes I am a wimp. Oh and I forgot to mention that Sean and myself were up all night the night before laying down the basic tracks. We were speeding out of our minds on our first day of recording. Everything that we did that day was done in one take. Ha!
