Open for Business
Open for Business was recorded in Malibu at Seamonster Sounds from
January, 2007 to July of 2009. After Hoagie Hill had mixed the previous
album Free Alongside Ship, the band decided to create the album
with Hill at his studio in order to achieve a more polished sound. An
early recording session included a group of the band's friends, many of
them non-musicians, jamming on various instruments to create soundscapes
that were used throughout the album. During the recording of the album,
Amy and Brandon's relationship dissolved; Brandon was kicked out of the
band. Devin, Amy and Hoagie completed the album although by the time
the album was released, AJ Anderson and Red Fox had both joined the lineup though they are not present on the recording.
Free Alongside Ship
After the band independently recorded their full length debut Post No Bills, they were able to upgrade some of their equipment. Having done away with their drummer, Devin and Brandon programmed the rhythm sections on a Korg Electribe sequencer/sampler. After all tracks were recorded for the album, they hired Hoagie Hill of Seamonster Sounds to mix the tracks, after he had previously mastered the Ladyslipper EP. To support the album the band embarked on the Carriage of Goods tour, which included dates up and down the west coast of the US, and select dates in New York, New Mexico, Missouri, Kansas, Nevada and as far as Reykjavik, Iceland.

Electroclash was making waves in the Los Angeles club scene, and Devin in particular was very taken by the sound and style of the movement. He wanted to re-imagine some of Shitting Glitter's songs in a more electro style, and the band was in the process of sacking their drummer at the time anyway. So they recorded new tracks "Slut Buffet," "Guerilla," and "The Curse" and then made new recordings of "Goddess Room," "Mustache Rides," as well as their cover of Missing Persons "Words." Later editions included re-recorded versions of "Mechanically Separated Chicken" and "R So" which had been recorded for the latter's 7" single.
