Taking Back Sunday's John Nolan performing "Cute Without The 'E' (Cut From The Team)" at Riot Fest Denver (Day 2).

Old Demos By John Nolan Feat. Jesse Lacey Unearthed

Unbeknownst to many, Taking Back Sunday‘s John Nolan started a band in high school under the name of Gudmunder Bjornsen. The band recorded a bunch of music before Nolan joined TBS in 1999.

Ten of these tracks have recently surfaced over at SoundCloud; some of which feature Brand New‘s Jesse Lacey and John’s sister, Michelle Nolan. Word is also going around that these tracks might have also been produced with Lacey.

We kind of dig it. You can check out the very easily jam-able and not-rough demos below. Don’t forget to let us know what you think.

The video was posted yesterday with a description of: “4 trackin’. Gettin’ irreverent. Working out our harmonizin’ on one of our favorite tunes. Andrea’s southern accent is totally real, Jesse’s isn’t at all,” on a Vimeo account that posed no other word on why or when the cover was actually recorded.
