Recorded, mixed and mastered by Scott Wolff at Rock Compound in Brooklyn.
Conditioned is where it all started, when guitarist/vocalist Scott Wolff (Pumps, Bound & Buried, Moving Target) realized that he had a bunch of songs and no band, so he went into the studio to make a record on his own. The result was a bit of a throwback to the 1990’s melodic punk scene he grew up in, drawing influence from Good Riddance, 88 Fingers Louie and Bad Religion.
While Conditioned was well-received, the sloppy playing and recording led to a few songs being rerecorded for Drag. The reissued version of Conditioned includes a cover of Chicago legend No Empathy's smash hit Shot in the Head.
Little known fact: the cover art was created and donated by Mike Phelps after Scott attempted to release the album with what might have been the worst cover ever created. Thanks Mike.
