Tracks 1, 5, 8, 12, 16 & 22 recorded by Seth Moody at Baby Ace in the spring of '96. All other tracks recorded by Phil Money at Will's house in the fall of '96.

The Pills were from Wilmington, NC and together for just one year. Formed in Oct '95 and disbanded Oct of '96, after founding member Will Simmons moved on to greener pastures in sunny Pittsburgh, PA. Two original line-up reunions have taken place. The first was at Nutstock 2 in '03 and the other was in Oct of '05 at the wedding of Jennifer Greer and Dave Heller. I'm happy to say that Cy was at both of those shows. We had only recorded 6 of our songs when Will announced that he'd be splitting town. Three of these tracks were released as a 7", and all six on a cassette out on Bees Make Honey records. So, we decided to bring Phil Money and his mobile recording unit down from Richmond, VA to record everything else we had written. We knocked out all the tracks in a weekend, but only mixed a few of them, some of which were released on cassette on BMH and one on a split 7" with the legendary Analogue, out on Sit & Spin records. Several years later, we finally convinced P-Money to go back and finish mixing the rest of the tracks. He did so and sent them on to us. We then talked a good game of releasing the whole kit & kaboodle, but alas the project stalled and a proper release never materialized......until now! So, here it is at long last.....The Cruise Control Pills from Soup to Nuts. We miss you, Cy.
