Without Reason was recorded at various locations throughout the late 1990's and we eventually put it together for release in 1999. Bands would always wish they could go back in time and redo some of their tracks, but hey who really gives a toss. Here it is, and to me it sounds good. Included in this download are 2 bonus tracks from the FOS Brothers archive.

Their mix of drums, percussion loops and samples and soaring guitars and bass, delight Festival and Venue audiences and that’s even before they start singing!
