"This was a really fun album to make, and weirdly, the first album we ever made in our hometown of Vancouver. We recorded it at Mushroom Studios over at 1234 West 6th Avenue on a scorching BC Day long weekend in the summer of 1999. It was quite the party with wild-man producer Kurt Bloch at the production helm. This also marked our first album with Graham Watson on the drums, our official replacement for Bryce Dunn, after a few years of desperate searching. We thought Rosie was poised for big things, but it didn't quite sell as many as Selling The Sizzle did four years earlier. Rosie did, however, get us around the world on an indie-world-tour that started in February 2000 and ended in February 2001: Canada, the USA, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. Hell of a time!"
