Liner notes:
Prologue (in which..)
Pianist Eric Morrison and guitarist Andrew Deutsch meet in a performing arts high school in South Florida, and soon start collaborating on camcorder movies. The two ramble around various Floridian cities, moving from filmmaking to music. Eventually, they land in Tampa where they meet bassist Brad Truax and drummer Sean Martin and formally dub themselves Home (a nod to a fictional band in a soap opera they were writing). As the recordings started to pile up, they form a label/collective called Screw Music Forever and begin to offer $1 cassettes at local record stores. In a freak happenstance, one of these cassettes lands in the lap of a Relativity Records A&R man, who soon rolls up smoking large cigars and offering money for Home IX.

After Home IX, Sean gets a hold of some bad shellfish and disappears for 10 years. Home carries on, making six more albums. Then, Sean reemerges, just as Brah Records befriends Home, with the notion of creating a musical tribute to fucking, resulting in Home's first Brah release, Sexteen. Phase I (in which...)
The Home boys, in post-coital bliss return from traveling the land (metaphorically) having spent their wad on Home Sexteen and begin to envision an Alternate Reality (heretofore notated as "AR") from which to begin writing Home XVII. The basic story arc finds each member's life so suddenly destroyed that they are forced to all move back into a communal living space to start over and retreat to the pop-rock origins of their genesis. Par exemplar:
A) Andrew returns home to find his entire apartment building decimated and all physical manifestations of his identity completely erased.
B) Eric is excommunicated by his wife when she discovers he is a crossdresser and he embarks on a sweet but ill-conceived plan to win her back by exploding the sun on her birthday.
C) Chris discovers that his lover is an android of unknown design and motive.
etc/etc

Home converges in the Devils Isle WetLab Studio and records the skeleton tracks of Home XVII.

Phase II (in which..)
The Actual Reality (heretofore notated as "AR") Home embarks on a leisurely summer of overdubbery, during which they decide to tackle the long-overdue task of digitizing and mastering their first eight albums which have dangerously oxidized in a Makers Mark wooden box for nearly 15 years. Somewhere in analyzing these early recordings, Home becomes re-interested in the sound of songs in their genesis; the (wholley) imperfect object that is felt but not yet processed.

Phase III (in which...) Each member of (AR) Home is cast about to their individual places of comfort to record their pressing concerns. The carefully crafted uber-story abandoned for passing fancy. The MS-16 fullness for the red-line compression of a 4-track. When they reconvene, they sort through some 60 songs to file down to the "new" Home XVII, a scattershot sampling of moments and perspectives that somewhat awkwardly leaves archeological traces of cross-dressing and identity destruction.

Liner notes:
The Home Box set (Home 1-VIII) was released by Brah Records. You can stream those songs further down on this page. Please go to the following places to get much more box set action:

1. The Brah Records site, where you can order and download all the Home Box Set mp3s!

2. The Home Box Set website, which is full of photos and stories of the early roach house days in Tampa.

The Home Boxset began unitentionally in 1991 when Eric Morrison and Andrew Deutsch, sharing a small apartment in Tampa, Florida, began to use a shared Radio Shack "supertape" to mix down their latest songs. When the tape was filled, it seemed to fill at least the technical definition of an album and 20 cassette copies were dubbed. These were loaded up into a candy jar, placed on the counter of Blue Chair Music in Tampa and sold for a dollar.

As Home began to form into a proper band with the inclusion of Brad Truax and Sean Martin, the methodology remained in place, as songs were finished they were mixed down to a community tape and the Blue Chair jar would be replenished when each tape was filled. In the span of 2 and half years, Home recorded these eight albums on gruadually less crude equipment. Starting with two Realistic cassette decks that were wired together, and ending with a cassette 4-track machine. Brah Records is for the first time filling in the missing gap that will answer the question: Why does Home's discography begin with "IX"?

Liner notes:
Home Sexteen is a concept record about fucking. After a hiatus of nearly a decade, founding Home drummer Sean Martin reappeared suddenly with a stunning collection of songs he had written and recorded by himself on a 4-track, "Songs of Love and Related Topics", which was released on Home?limited edition CD boutique, "100 Club". When Home visited Florida in 2005 for the annual Screw Music Forever "Come the Freak On" festival, they had Sean sit in for a set of songs and the notion of reuniting to record a new album became inevitable. Sean suggested a concept album about fucking and it took little time for all to agree. They wrote nearly 50 songs on the subject, which were whittled down to 20 and recorded in a marathon 3-day weekend recording blitz. Chris shared drumming duties with Sean, while everyone switched up instruments as needed. The wide stylistic differences between the writers bleed across song borders and gelled into an overall sound that is difficult to categorize but easy to recognize as fuck-friendly. The very sweet dudes in Oneida took an interest and offered to release it in their corner of Jagjaguwar, Brah Records. Home graciously accepted.

Liner notes:
By now, Home IX was already complete and winding its way through the music business machine. The Okara Rd Home-House was vacated and the rent deposit was not returned to the suprise of exactly no one. This album was available exclusively on 8-track. (fewer copies than usual, since the larger format filled up the candy jar much more quickly). The master 8-track was damaged and this collection only includes programmes 1 and 2. If anyone has an original Home VIII, with programmes 3 and 4, please contact captain@screwmusicforever to collect your very special prize.

10. Epilogue

Liner notes:
By the time we were finishing up 7, we were deep in the process of signing to Relativity/Sony, during an era when Maximum Rock and Roll published Albini's "some of your friends are probably already this fucked" begging young artists to stay far far away from labels. There were endless tipsy discussions about the spiritual landmines of selling out. But when Sean deftly rhymed "marlboro miles" with "Governor Chiles" we all knew that it would work out.

12. The Boy Who Beat Off and Listened to Frequency Music

Liner notes:
6 and 7 became a double album when a high-bias 90 minute cassette was used as the community master tape instead of the standard 30 minute "Supertape". A majority of the songs were recorded outside of the Okara house, perhaps because it had become perpetually messy. When the Grifters crashed there after a show, Stan wound up sleeping in their van because the cockroaches kept waking him up. It apparently became a popular road story for them. When Home toured America for years after that, they were routinely and often suddenly recognized as "oh god.. you're the guys with that house!!"

12. Can't Believe

Liner notes:
By 94, the okara house became an established after show destination, with most nights ending with Screw Music Forever people gathered in the kitchen or the front porch working their way toward oblivion. On a night like this, Eric momentarily gained the ability to see the atomic structure of a forgotten peanut butter sandwich on the hexagonal end table in the front living room. He wrote the song "atomic" about it and many more songs about atoms, but never told a soul about what he had witnessed.

Liner notes:
Brad surreptitiously remixed Home 4 just as it was being dubbed off, because there were too many sissy songs and too little rock. Eric was besmirched at first. Not only at being caught unawares, but also because Brad included "getting alot done on a busy day" which was also on Home III. But Eric grew to understand Brad's wisdom and has loved him every day since.

Liner notes:
By III, Home had become a functioning band that was playing in Ybor City, St Pete and Gainesville. A permanent candy jar was set on the counter at Blue Chair Music and whenever the cassette we were mixing new songs down on was filled up, it was dubbed off a dozen or so times and the jar was refilled.. along with free candy.. which people like because its sweet.

This was also the time when all four members moved into a house on Okara street, just a few blocks from Busch Gardens. When the wind was right, the sounds of screaming roller coaster riders could be heard wafting through the trees. One tree in particular, in the front yard was the perfect girth to embrace. Less like a hippie and more like a lover.

Liner notes:
Around the release of 2, bill clinton was elected president. of course, we were all totally stoked. but a chill ran down my spine when there was a picture of him on the cover of the local paper doing the sign of the horns.

sure, george bush senior was a nightmare, but judging from his hand gestures, he wasn't satan. this new charismatic guy who ripped off elvis, on the other hand, looked to be. The recordings that followed pretty much captured how that realization felt.

Liner notes:
The first album came into being without intention. Eric and Andrew had just moved into a small apartment called Sherwood Forest in Brandon, FL, and immediately resumed their high school protocol of entertaining themselves by recording songs.

The studio consisted of two Radio Shack cassette decks connected with a Radio Shack mixing board. We'd record one instrument, then move the tape over to the player-deck and play another instrument live with that, while recording on deck 2. Then repeat, repeat, repeat until the noise floor hit a critical mass of "just barely listenable", at which point the song was "done". Most of this first tape was recorded while still recruiting Brad and Sean to put a proper group together, which is why the rhythm section is often bottles and cans and salt-shakers.
