This entire collection of songs was produced, written and recorded in hotel rooms across the United States while Haygun was on tour with basketball’s losingest team, The Washington Generals. The music for each track represents one night in a given hotel room, with the entire process of sound creation, sequencing and recording live to 2-track being completed in a single session. Haygun then pieced together lyrics for each of those clips from the constant swirl of land and time coming through the bus window. “You don’t have to stay here, but you can’t go home

The original release of this CD-R included a limited edition of hotel room key cards, hand-labeled during Haygun’s tour with The Trotters and The Generals. Edition of approx 100.
