Brant Bjork would form a touring outfit in The Bros back in 2003 with Michael Peffer, Mike Pygmie and Dylan Roche. However by 2004, Pygmie would be replaced by Cortez in time to record this double-album at Rancho de la Luna.

At the end of At the end of "Avenida de la Revolución" different music (Cream's "SWLABR") can be heard playing on the background, transitioning into the band's cover of "Sunshine of Your Love". Also after the 5-minute Arcade Eyes there is a couple minutes of silence before a hidden bonus track, a cover of "2000 Man" by The Rolling Stones.
