We were recording the first record and we had an end of the day ritual of watching episodes of the X-files, that Tony had accumulated of the first season. Eve 6 was a character in one of the episodes. We just kinda of took to it. We still didn't have a name for the band at the time and needed one badly so we decided on Eve 6.
We had a meeting with Clive Davis the head of our record company. I went to go relieve myself in the bathroom. When I looked in the mirror I noticed I had sweat stains under my arms. A little social anxiety. A quick little panic, I guess. I told myself , "It's all in your head," and thought its a pretty appropriate title for this record.
It kinda takes a few shows to work it out and refine it. We just kinda go off songs that we want to play. We definitely want to please the audience. But we want to chose a set for a show like this that's a half hour long. Do a blitz of songs that gets the people going even if people haven't necessarily heard them and get ourselves going as well.
We didn't do it that way. We played locally as much as we could. We were still in high school at the time. A scout, I guess you could call her from an independent company called Doctor Dream in Orange County saw us and through that connection we met a woman who become our manager and hooked us up with RCA. We didn't demo actually until -- oh wait, that's not true. We did a couple of demos but that was mainly to pass around to our friends. We never really sent it to labels.
