As is strangely typical with most bands in their infancy stage, lineup changes were imminent and frequent. At times, the concept of the band consisting of 4 like-minded individuals who shared the same musical vision and DIY work ethic seemed far-fetched. It was not until Dan finally found himself in the company of bassist Greg Horton, guitarist Erik Bailey and drummer Martin Cornish that Bullet Train To Vegas truly took form.
With the Bullet Train To Vegas lineup solidified, the band’s sound came to life as well. Melding a sharp and frenetic guitar style echoing post-punk pioneers such as Gang Of Four and Wire, with a howling and spontaneous vocal attack reminiscent of underground heroes such as Pitchfork and Clikitat Ikatowi, the band had clearly achieved their shared goal of creating something to which they could fully dedicate themselves. So began a steady stream of DIY tours across the U.S, the band sharing the stage with the likes of Bloc Party, Sparta, Pretty Girls Make Graves, Panthers, JR Ewing, The Blood Brothers, The Bronx, Minus The Bear, Planes Mistaken for Stars and Q and not U.
In Spring 2004, as Bullet Train To Vegas went into writing lockdown, Producer Alex Newport (At The Drive In, The Mars Volta, Ikara Colt) stumbled onto some demos which, to him, spoke loud and clear the fact that he had found the next band to whom he wanted to dedicate his time. Newport soon had the label-less band in his own Hot Head Studios in Downtown Los Angeles, spending three weeks tracking the eleven songs that would soon comprise their debut album, We Put Scissors Where Our Mouths Are.
