Tannenbaum recorded these songs from his friend Spencer's apartment in South Philly on a chilly winter afternoon a few days after the new year. Instead of playing acoustic guitar, he played "a fake ES-335" semi-hollowbody clean through an amp. He taped the telephone's receiver to his guitar case, the perfect placement to accommodate the recording.
"Punk Rock Wedding, Punk Rock Divorce" appears on Ex Friends' 2013 record titled Twisted Around. As of its recording, "Rich Kid School" is unreleased, though intended for Ex Friends' anticipated full-length. "Human 2000" is a Plow United song and appears on the 2013 record titled Marching Band. "Ivy League College" is a J Church cover; the song originally appeared on their 1995 single of the same name.
