Drummer Heath Johnson and songwriter Chris Hatfield met in the early winter of 2000. In spite of an initial prolonged and continuing mutual distaste for one another, the pair joined with guitarist Denis Blount to form Army/Navy, releasing a 2002 EP and 2004 full-length for Suburban Sprawl Music.
After an extended period of time in Those Transatlantics, Hatfield became dissatisfied with the group's pace and inability to capitalize on its potential, so armed with a glut of unrealized songs and ideas, he approached Johnson about rekindling their musical partnership. Luckily, both Hatfield and Johnson moved to opposite coasts of the US before any solution could be found regarding their recordings, and thus many months were spent sending mixes back and forth while the appropriate revisions were made. Recorded in Michigan and mixed at studios in both San Francisco and New York City, 'Phenomenomenons' is the culmination of years of collaborative effort between Johnson and Hatfield, along with mixing engineer and former bandmate, Denis Blount.
Currently, Hatfield resides in Oakland, California and is writing and performing with the newest incarnation of Love Axe, and Johnson makes his home in Charleston, South Carolina, pursuing musical outlets with his own variant of Love Axe. The two continue to collaborate on musical projects via electronic correspondence and mutual distrust.
