Four years ago TNT recorded songs in a cramped kitchen and frontman Josh Grier bought the domain name tapesntapes.com, named after those first kitchen tapes, to force them to start a band. Now they’re recording songs in much larger kitchens and are seriously contemplating the purchase of tapesntapes.net.
