“Vanishing Point” was an attempt to force myself to write a full song. I had been playing in Break Even for about a year and found myself completely unable to write music. I had just set up a nice little 8-track studio (sort of) at home and I used that to demo the first ideas that came into my head. That ended up as “Vanishing Point.” I am constantly waffling back and forth over whether the guitars in the verses should be acoustic or distorted electric. I think I’ve changed this recording at least three times. I played my original demo for Break Even and, except for thinking the little spoken word section was cool, there wasn’t much interest.
