deli: How did the band start?
The Basement Beat: We actually only knew each other vaguely beforehand. Originally, we were only going to play one show. We wanted to get a few songs together for our town’s annual music festival and we started practicing together a week before we performed. Somehow, we managed to get three songs together which ended up becoming "Vacation 1," "Wah-Oh!," and "You Say," which are all on the EP. Two of us were friends before and two of us were siblings, but we didn’t go to the same schools.
