Meneguar started in the winter of 2004. After years of playing together in other projects Christian Deroeck, Jeremy Earl, Justin Wertz and Jarvis Taveniere moved in to a small house in Bushwick and began work on what would eventually become I Was Born at Night. Recorded with their gloves on in an under-heated practice space in 4 hour blocks, the record came out in a limited pressing on May 10th 2005. Since then they've toured extensively, released 2 cassettes on Fuck-it-tapes and recently finished a 7 inch for Troubleman Unlimited (OUT NOW!!!). Nicolas Vernhes (Silver Jews, Fiery Furnaces, Les Savy Fav) remixed the album in the winter of 2005 at his Rare Book Room studio in Greenpoint. This summer marks the release of the remixed, remastered record on Troubleman Unlimited. Satan has foretold its release on June 6th, 2006 on CD/LP. The band will be on a cross country tour March and April making a stop in Austin for a series of SXSW shows.
"In a spare seven songs, Meneguar, driven with purpose, get in and get out, smearing a canvas of lament and unison. With no shortage of woes or words, singer Jarvis Taveniere barely has time to catch his breath, nor does the rest of the band, whose onslaught of crisscrossing instrumentation envelops you as fully as a bucket of cold water-in the refreshing sense, not the wet, dripping one. " -CMJ
"I haven't been able to pull it out of my car CD player for a week now. It's got that roadtrip vibe written all over it. Powerful tunes with rock energy and sing-along sensibilities; I mean, that is pretty much the definition of a roadtrip album isn't it? Every song will lay its melodies in your head, only to add to that with the next song. There is not one missed step or wasted second on I Was Born At Night. It will easily become one of those CD's that you will have to know where it is at all times. And it will fit perfectly in your disc changer with Vs. the Greatest of All Times, the newest Plastic Constellations record, Crooked Rain Crooked Rain, and Lonesome Crowed West [.]" -Indie Workshop
