Town Burned Down, the sole lost album from Adam’s House Cat that’s now being released for the first time, lays bare the band’s many influences. The 1990 LP offers a revealing glimpse into the type of music–primarily reverb heavy college rock–Cooley and Hood were most infatuated with as young twentysomething’s (Cooley was 19, and Hood, 21, when Adam’s House Cat band formed in 1985). The specter of bands like . late-period Replacements, and even Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers loom large on Town Burned Down, which today sounds like a long-lost scrappy southern indie staple.

1991 saw Adam’s House Cat struggling to both fund their album’s completion and simply stay together. Hood tracked his lead vocals in on the same January night in which George . Bush began Operation Desert Storm. Backing vocals and minimal overdubs were added that winter and though Hood was not entirely thrilled with his vocal performances, by spring, Melton had begun mixing the raw recordings. The final mixes were later mastered at Sterling Sound in Edgewater, NJ by longtime DBT collaborator Greg Calbi. TOWN BURNED DOWN can at last be properly heard the way Adam’s House Cat always wanted it to be heard, its raw soul and boisterous enthusiasm already hinting at what was yet to come.

Burning Down the House (バーニング・ダウン・ザ・ハウスBāningu Daun Za Hausu) is the Stand of Emporio Alniño featured in Stone Ocean. It materializes the ghost of a music room hidden behind an invisible crack on the wall of a stairs in Green Dolphin Street Prison

Tom Petty and his family were sitting down to breakfast on the morning of May 17, 1987, when they began to smell smoke. Within moments, Petty's Encino, Calif. home was engulfed in flames. He got his wife and 5-year-old daughter out safely, and then did his best to fight the blaze alongside his housekeeper (who sustained minor injuries after her hair caught fire). Petty later remembered picking up a hose only to have it melt in his hands. Firefighters did their best, but the fire burned through the house quickly. The only room that went unscathed was Petty's basement studio.
