Welcome to day 16 of a 30-day tribute to the history of Duluth's favorite
Today you are afforded a rare glimpse into the songwriting process of Bone Appetit.
When the band first began, many a night were spent in the basement of their shared house making a god-awful racket and just maybe, discovering a turd worth polishing. Songs like "I Love You Skull", "Drive Away", and "Brain Invaders" were carved out in this fashion.
"Alyssa" was another song birthed in the basement, and the exact moment of conception of this fan-favorite can be heard in the newly-uncovered recording below.

"Fire Alarm" however, never made it out of the basement for obvious reasons.

One of the more prolific songwriters in the group, Sudden Death would pen many songs while living in Minneapolis and send them via e-mail to Duluth for consideration. Two songs that came out of a period of heavy Guns n' Roses listening are "Screamin' Wheels", and "She Rocks." Axl's influence is clearly evident by the vocal stylings of Death on these recordings.
