about

It all began with a meeting between Dave Symington and Sam Sullivan, who had both become Tetraplegic through sporting accidents.

“One night we made a commitment to do whatever it took to play music again,” as Sullivan writes in the album liner notes. Shortly afterwards, the pair formed Spinal Chord with guitarist Don Alder and John Shepp on bass.

What followed, recalls Dave more than 25 years later, was a process of trial and error – a mix of equal parts childlike enjoyment and musical growth – that culminated in a release they could be proud of.

“While our motivations were somewhat superficial, we knew that if we could do it for ourselves we could do it for other people,” he said.
