Album Notes

In 1988, the Washington, DC-based alternative pop trio Mind's i—for which Dave Goodrich was a drummer, percussionist, singer, songwriter, and producer from 1985 to 1990—released a fully-produced, 5-song band EP entitled A House Defiled on the BBTB Records label.  The album was nominated for a Washington Area Music Award (WAMMIE) in the Best Debut Album Category.

The album was arranged and produced by Mind's i.  Mixed by Bill Plummer and Kevin Morales at Central Studio in Silver Spring, MD, the EP was also engineered by Bill Plummer.  In addition to writng two of the songs—Dreams and Something's WrongDave Goodrich created the cover art and concept.  The cover art painting was based on the Mind's i photo that was taken in Georgetown and which appears on the back of the album.  Jacket design was by Mind's i, and graphics were designed by Paula Fener.


André Follot:  Bass and backing vocals

Dave Goodrich:  Drums, percussion, and backing vocals

Lenny Stearns:  Lead vocals and guitars

"Songs like Dreams and the title track are compact and direct, and it's that stripped down magnetism that makes this brand of alternative rock so interesting...

...a safe bet for those with adventurous ears."

"Assured harmonies add to the appeal of their five-song EP..."
