Other Dimensions in Jersey City

James recalls January 27, 2000: Our old rehearsal space in Jersey City, NJ was on the 3rd floor of a disintegrating, city block-sized warehouse, just off Washington Avenue. The building can be seen briefly in “Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.” Unlike that movie, the place sucked. But this was a day when it didn’t matter. Sue Garner, Peter Walsh, Daniel Carter, Sabir Mateen, and the late Roy Campbell, Jr. braved the icy fire escape stairs, the terrifying freight elevator, and the never-to-be-mentioned-again bathroom to come and record the “Now 2000″/ “Excalibur 2001″ 2×7” EP with us.
