Vrenna wore many different hats when, in 2001, he recorded Tweaker’s The Attraction to All Things Uncertain for the San Francisco-based Six Degrees label. In addition to producing most of the album, he was among the engineers and did most of the writing. It would almost be safe to describe Tweaker as a one-man band—Vrenna was certainly in the driver’s seat on The Attraction to All Things Uncertain. However, he did enlist the help of a few others, including violinist Petra Haden, Shudder to Think’s Craig Wedren, David Sylvian, Will Oldham and various guitarists. Reflecting Vrenna’s interest in abstract art, the album’s title was inspired by a Joe Sorren painting called Elliot’s Attraction to All Things Uncertain. In fact, the conceptual material that Vrenna wrote or co-wrote for Tweaker’s album was mindful of Elliot, the affably bookish character in Sorren’s painting. Six Degrees released The Attraction to All Things Uncertain in September 2001.
2002 was mostly dedicated to other projects, but in January of 2003, Vrenna signed a deal with Waxploitation and iMUSIC to release the next Tweaker album. He stepped back into the studio around the same time to work on new material, and set up an in-progress page on his website to keep fans updated on the latest developments for Tweaker.
In 2004 the band recorded the theme song for the id Software game Doom 3.
