Recorded in Washington DC with Geoff Turner, and mixed in San Diego by Mark Trombino (Drive Like Jehu)....and that's pretty much the whole story. What else do you need? D.C. styled guitar rock meets San Diego styled guitar rock, turns out that equals Chapel Hill styled guitar rock, although Garden Variety were from New Jersey no the Cacka.
It's upbeat, slightly noisy, slightly poppy, good time music. Nothing more, nothing less. It holds up very well after 14 years, and that's more than you can say for most records. If you ever find yourself listening to Superchunk, Jawbox, Drive Like Jehu, or Seaweed, then you'll most likely find something to latch onto in Garden Variety
Members went on to be in Radio 4, Retisonic, Bluetip, and Vic Thrill.
One of these songs was on a split with Hell No, and one was on a split with Chune. FYI.
