Originally the project was started by Oz (a film student turned musician) as The Lazy Kids, who found found four of the five members via Craigslist.
A more experimental shift in style over the years, a night of poor sleep, and a chance encounter at a party led to the final member joining the band on keys, and the birth of Lazy Scorsese. "Lazy Scorsese are formidable mood makers with surplus depth...Their

"Dimebag" is inspired by the story of Eddie Van Halen's guitar in Dimebag Darrell's coffin. It's a heavy and undertold story, like one people would make up while trying to understand constellations. The sword of the elder. Now, this music happens to not sound much like either of those musicians, rather it was written as a sort of abstract memorial service in 3 parts. The idea grew from there.
Recording began in January of 2007, and continued as ideas sprung up everywhere, preserved using what was at hand. 2 songs were written and recorded at Andrew Bird soundchecks. 2 were recorded by the late great Micheal "Eyedea" Larsen. One was a part of another recording that sounded good by itself. This record was as discovered as it was made. Time plays a role as 10 years passed while material slowly fell together.
"Malibu Hymnal", by contrast, was made in a few hours. Guitars, microphones, friends. That's what happened.
