Gabriel Garcia Marquez once remarked that good writers are not always judged by what they say, but often by what they dont say. Hungry Ghosts ventured off into this space, deciding soon after their first rehearsal, that the Art of the Smashed-up-sonic-meltdown was best left to their heroes. What soon followed was an exercise in restraint who could play the quietest, or who could do the least. The result, was the discovery of Silence. In 1996 after only three performances, they came to the attention of Lindsay Gravina, who instantly fell in love with the group, inviting them on-the-spot to record an album at his Birdland Studio. With Rowland S. Howard in the producers seat, they set about to capture the sounds that would make up their first album.
