Sean: guitars, singing, some keyboard, some drumming, songwriting.

Rodrigo Falcao: drums on "Blue Room."

Most of this was recorded during the Vancouver snowstorms of late 2008. However, "Creature of Fancy" was recorded in 2006 at Grave Level, "You Know My Name..." was recorded at Ellis and Adam's old house, and "Snowplough," "Sunday Night...," and "Saturday Night..." were recorded in my bedroom in Montreal.

"You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)" was written by The Beatles.
Caitlin wrote some of the words and melodies in "Terrible Sun."
