*April to June, 2001 -After a 3 month hiatus, production on the latest album from the OBViOUS resumes in the recently transplanted Digital Banana Recording Studio in Tokyo's fashion district, Harajuku. Not all equipment survives the move. Bradley saves the day by arranging a last minute delivery of an important piece of gear in a last minute trans-Pacific delivery top a desperate mr christopher in Japan.
*July, 2001- This month saw the completion of recording and mixing of the latest OBViOUS CD in Tokyo Japan. mr christopher personally delivers the pre-mastered songs to the states for mastering.
Musically, 4OBViOUS rEASONS was a huge step forward for the OBViOUS combining rock with swing on "Dorathy Lamour", rock pop with electronica on "Only One", a bit of funk with "Ducky", a jazz flavored "Wouldn't You Know" as well as super power pop hits like "hEY yOU!" and "Say It With Your Eyes", along side of the big rockers like "Mysterious" and "Some Other Guy".
