Well it has only taken 6 years to finally get this re-mastered, sleeved and printed, but it was worth it for the sentimental value. Once I Tried were a band from Leeds who had a 3 year run between 2002-2004 (I believe) this 4-track EP was recorded near Christmas in 2004 in London and produced by Dan Weller. If you’re in the dark (which you most likely are)…
Once I Tried are a mixture of Metalcore/Hardcore/Death/Grind/Noisecore and they recorded their EP at the end of December 2004. One track in Wales, at Mighty Atom Studios, with Joe Gibb of Mighty Atom Records, and also at Shelter Studios in London with Sikth guitarist Dan Weller
The title of the EP Our Film Like Ending was lifted from the lyrics to the final track entitled Scarecrows – Like a roll of film cut into pieces – I look back at the scattered pieces and always remember – Our film like ending which never really began.
These lyrics are extremely relevant to the band now, because this EP really is a film like ending for the band. This EP is the bands debut release, and also the end for the band.
After recording the EP in December 2004, the band had a new lease of life, and were exited about the prospects which they thought were to come, however after a few more months they began to drift apart from one another and during the summer months of July, with plans to travel to London in order to sign a contract for the release of the EP through Independent Label, Index Records USA, they decided to call it a day.
But the EP will see light, instead of lying around on a replicated Memorex disk, with no intentions but to gather dust and scratches for the next however many years.
