Scott Foust、Karla Borecky、Mike Popovichの3者によるユニットThe Pickle Factory。開口部を金具で留める特殊な封筒パッケージにてリリースをした作品[Our Pledge]。各楽曲事にテープ／ボイス／キーボード／ベース／ギターの編成をランダムに変更する10曲入りアルバム。かなり中毒性の高い反復／ミニマル演奏。
The Pickle Factory is Karla Borecky and Scott Foust from IFCO plus long-time collaborator Mike Popovich. The sound is somewhat similar to the Idea Fire Company, although within at least sort of a song structure. Many think this is our finest work yet. The CD package is a manila envelope with stickers on the front and back, and a printed card insert. Some (in the U.S.) have suggested that the package is crap, although people overseas don't seem to think so. The truth is the I just hate jewel boxes.
