After forming in 2000, and releasing a couple of EP’s, Space Cadet emerged in 2003 with their debut album, Greatest Hits (ironic name for a debut album, right???). Filled with catchy melodies and guitar driven hooks, Greatest Hits is a stellar pop-punk debut for the Denton-based quartet. The band enlisted now DFW veteran engineers Taylor Tatsch and Derek Taylor to record and mix their breakout album and the chemistry is extremely evident. Notable tracks are California, Greatest Hits, Blip and the ever popular cover Let’s Go by the Cars. Greatest Hits is a DFW Legacy Series exclusive on Ultra Clear / Clear Red split color vinyl.
Garin Murdock, Ricky Brooks, John Humphrey and Jesse Davis - collectively known as HUVER - made Wheatland, Oklahoma ground zero for a truly fresh musical timebomb that was ready to explode onto the musical scene. For ten years before this band, Jesse, Ricky and John recorded and performed in The Nixons. The Nixons enjoyed moderate success during a decade of touring, recording three major-label albums and MTV video appearances. In early 2000 the 3 of them decided to embark on a new musical endeavor and the missing piece was found with frontman for the Oklahoma City band Owl - Murdock. Intense writing and recording ensued during the fall and winter of 2000. Based on local and regional airplay for the tracks "Lower" and "Lavender" they garnered national critical acliam and found themselves on the radio and flying to the east coast to showcase for various record labels. Sadly, in 2002, due to various reasons, HUVER called it quits. Orchestrated guitars, driving bass coupled with strong drums, and Garin's voice makes HUVER's sound memorable. The Orginal EP producer was Steven Haigler (Fuel, Bob Mould, The Nixons) and was mixed by Greg Archilla (Matchbox Twenty, Collective Soul, Buckcherry). The demos and live tracks included on this release were never "officially" released by the band...until now.
