Some of our best friends back in the early days of JVA were in a band called 8th Wave. They were a ska band, but I think they wanted to be known as a pop-punk band with a horn section. Their singer really liked Wu Tang Clan. In any case, those guys went to a studio called Deadspace and did an EP that sounded like nothing else that had ever come out of Lincoln before. It sounded AWESOME. Like, radio awesome. So even though we didnt know the guys who made the recording, what it cost, or how to go about making a great sounding recording, we were determined to get it done the best we could. Document the Fall was recorded at DeadSpace/Presto studios by Jason The Intern in three days. Mike Mogis and his brother A.J. poked their heads in from time to time to help with the session, and were very patient with our youth and inexperience. In those three days we forged a relationship that would last another 11 years, as we were so satisfied with the quality of our final product, we never really recorded anywhere else (for major releases). The studio became quasi-famous as the years went on because of its link with the Saddle Creek Records label. Presto did most or all of Saddle Creek's recordings for a good period of time, with each one sounding more beautiful than the last. Bands from all over the world would come to record there, with budgets that made our tiny records seem completely insignificant. Still, every time we went in to make a record we were treated like family, and the rates we paid were very fair for the incredible product and experience we got from the studio. Document the Fall was the beginning of our relationship with A.J. Mogis, Doug Van Sloun, and the studio that always made us sound bigger, better, and cooler than we actually were.

The JV Allstars were a pop-punk band from Lincoln, Nebraska from 2000-2012. They started like any band does, by sucking. In time, they got a little better and had lots of fun and toured a lot and released a bunch of music. Thanks!
