Wet Shoelaces Meets The DLF (2007)  (UMB020)

On March 13, 1999, Allen Bailey called Steve Gregory and asked him to come over and play with his new 4-track. They both had every intention of making demos for Allen's 3-minute pop songs. That never happened. 

Instead, a new project was born, one in which the rule book would be burned, and the primordial chaos would be allowed free reign. For the next five years, Wet Shoelaces would both terrorize and entertain listeners with their bizarre musical antics. 

Fast forward to March 13, 2004. By that time, six releases later, Allen and Steve had an extended family of creative partners, some of whom had also recorded for Umbref Records under the name DLF. To celebrate their fifth anniversary, they got together as many of these folks as they could for an all-day musical freak out.

The participants on these sessions are also the composers. This music is by everybody who was present. Personnel was:
