Sections of the website.

Hello Empire fans all around the world,

First of all... welcome! The Expensive Sound Website is here to stay. Spread the word.
On the top of the main page you can find the various sections.

THE BAND, a brief introduction to Empire as well as the line-ups and who recorded what.
TIMELINE, the Empire history year by year, month by month. A careful work.
RELEASES, the Empire CDs produced by Poorly Packaged Products.
Miles Over Matter, Babel Wallace's pre-Empire band.

More to come, so expect the list to grow in some capacity and... wait for some exciting audio stuff to pop up on the site. Cannot reveal more.

Thank you so much for being here.
