“We had a bunch of parties out by the pool almost every night. We had some porn star friends come up and some B list celebrities come … leading into weird orgies and questionable situations.”
“It was nuts.”
All the parties and weird orgies occurred in a small cottage by Prairie Sun Studios in Cotati, where the band briefly lived and recorded their self titled album in 2007.
Three years later, in 2010, The Expendables would release, in their opinion, the first album that they were ever actually prepared for. This land marking album is titled “Prove It.”
“I want people to be satisfied with our effort,” Demars said. Also, “I want people to get excited when they hear our new stuff, because that is how I feel when we play the new songs.”
But things really kicked off for the Santa Cruz ska/surf rock band back in 1997 when the group first formed. At this time, the guys enjoyed a laid back experience that consisted of making music, partying, skating and surfing.
