The Greatest Album of All Time, 2008.



Fagan and Hale met in 2007, at a support group for those grieving the death of an identical twin. Soon after, they embarked on a motorcycle trip beginning in Denver, Colorado, and ending in Ushuaia, Argentina, on Cape Horn, at the Southernmost tip of South America. They traded tins of Altoids and promotional merchandise won at bar trivia to the various indigenous peoples of Central America, Amazonia, and Patagonia in exchange for their traditional musical instruments. They sold their motorcycles and sailed to Antarctica, where they began recording what was to become the greatest album of all time. So great, in fact, that the satisfaction of having completed such a task prompted the pair to bury the master tapes under 60 feet of sea ice, never to be heard by any other human. They made a vow to never again record music. Instead, they would perform completely unrehearsed experimental music. Though they have taken great measures to insure the secrecy of their music, bootlegged recordings have surfaced, most likely the result of opportunistic eavesdroppers or obsessive fans.
