Lava Diva was a trio I fronted and played guitar in from about 1992 to 2002. On bass was Johnny-G (Gianna Sabella) and on drums/percussion was Greg Bernath. We had put out a self-tltled electric album a few years before Creaks and Dogs and decided to do an acoustic album mostly because during the course of Lava Diva, Greg and Johnny got married and were about to have a baby. We thought it best to tone it down a bit, volume wise, as not to stress the fetus so we made an acoustic record. We recorded the whole CD on an 8 track in Johnny and Greg's house. Had it not been for our beloved Mr. John Wells who recorded and mixed Creaks and Dogs, I don't know how we would have done it and done it as well as we did. Recording in a house as opposed to a studio has great benefits but it comes with the cost of exteranious noises... hence the title of the record.
