A foreword from Brad Habit:
My name is Brad, I have or have had a lot of bad habits. That is probably where the nickname Brad Habit came from.
Aaron Smash and I started IDFK after a short stint in another band which failed due to differences in musical opinion with the other two members. They moved on and did fine as did Aaron and I. I was in IDFK as one of the singers and rhythm guitar, with a short stint on bass when we did not have one or they could not make a show.
Opy X recorded us one day when our fill in drummer (just a temp at the time, we didn't have a full time drummer) happened to not show up. Opy not only offered to drum for the recording so we could complete it that day, but also offered to join the band. Being as I thought he was a god anyways from his previous musical endeavors, I immediately said 'yes' as did all the other members. I feel that was when IDFK actually became a solid music project.
Over my tenure with IDFK, I had multiple issues in my personal life with relationships, alcoholism, and basic rampant unreliability. I would get too drunk at shows and play the wrong chords, I would scream instead of sing when I was supposed to, and multiple other shenanigans that I, myself, still find irresponsible even today. I also had disovered that I was to be a Father very soon down the road, which, in my book, took priority over being in a band.Eventually, I decided that I was holding the band back from something that was great, therefore I decided to leave before I lost all my good friends.
Today, I regret my decisions, for I miss those boys quite a bit. I have a beautiful son, I am still a decent guitar player (I don't play the wrong chords too often anymore), and I have sobered up quite a bit. I love to see that IDFK has not only grown together as friends, but their musicianship has gotten better as well. I enjoy the rare times that I am able to attend shows and do some guest vocals for them. I listen to their cd/tracks quite often and tell coworkers and acquaintences "I used to be in that band" and still feel a bit of a loss. I know that they could not be as good as they are now if things did not progress the way that they did. I am damn proud of them. These are the kind of friends that make me strive more and more, day by day, to get my shit together so that one day, I may play in another awesome band along side of them and share the stage together.
From what I understand, this EP is a handful of songs that I either wrote or helped write when I was still in the band. I am greatly honored that they kept ANY of my ideas and remember some of the crap I used to write. Apparently, some are not so crappy after all. Enjoy these works of art and please keep supporting local music, especially IDFK, they are some pretty special and loving guys. I hope to see and or meet some or all of you at the shows or as a fellow band on stage in the future. Be well, -bh
