LP version. The Trickfinger project was recorded ten years ago with no intention of being released at the time, made purely for discovery and learning experience. John Frusciante on the project: "In my opinion, making music with no intention of releasing it is the best thing a musician can do for his own development in this day and age. The Trickfinger LP (AT 005CD/LP, 2015) was made in that mindset, and it was the beginning of a new musical life for me. When I hear it, it sounds like I am opening up doorways to new worlds, and I never have had that feeling listening to music I made for the purpose of releasing it and selling it." All the music was recorded live onto a CD burner, through a cheap mixer. John would sit on a chair, in his living room, surrounded by five to fifteen machines, and just keep programming and jamming until the track was ready to be recorded. There were no overdubs; it was recorded live. Acid Test unearthed these recordings and John agreed to have them released. Trickfinger II is the second part of recordings made during the winter of 2007.
