The First Fist (2011)
Almost all the songs for this album were written, performed, programmed, engineered, produced, and mastered by Dyniss. If you purchase this album, you can instantly download a zip file of high-quality mp3s embedded with the artwork, lyrics and meta tags. Dirt! wrote the lyrics (and performed) in the rap section for the song, “Ants.” Dana Baitz played piano on the song, “I Am Running.” Mark Boucher did the backup vocal harmonies on the song, “I Believe in Things.” All recording was done on Dyniss’ computer in the basement at his home. Special thanks to the original band members, whose arrangement ideas may have crept into the eventual songs: Mark Boucher (keyboards, percussion, vocal harmonies), Morris Coccia (drums and bass) and Alex Tikhnenko (bass). Mastered at Lacquer Channel, with thanks to Andrew Cowan for technical assistance.
