Hope Is for Hopers [Import]
- Artist: Philadelphia Grand Jury
- Format: CD
- Release Date:9/11/2009
Recorded by vocalist / guitarist Berkfinger on a shoe string budget of less than $3,000, 'hope is for hopers' displays the engrained do-it-yourself nature of Philadelphia Grand Jury at it's best. It was done during night time lock out sessions at big Jesus burger studios (where Berkfinger works as an engineer); in the day times in Berkfinger's grandparents' basement; and on the road wherever they could find electricity to plug the pro-tools recording rig in! The album features 12 tracks that capture the raw energy and songwriting prowess that has given the Philly Jays live show the life to turn audiences all over the country on any given night. Hope is for hopers captures the energy two guys whose love for what they do, and ability to get it done the right way, outshines any of the millennium production tricks most bands need to stand out.
