In June 2001 the Fergusons released their debut EP, Hurting the Washing Machine. The EP topped the local charts and received airplay on community radio nationwide. The song "Waste of Time" was added to moderate rotation on Triple J. The band were interviewed by Richard Kingsmill on the Oz Music Show, and they later recorded a four track live set for the program. The band were winners in the category of 'Best Emerging Act' for Western Australia at the Australian Live Music Awards. Jonathan Burnside (Eskimo Joe, The Sleepy Jackson) was recruited as producer for the Fergusons' debut album and he came to Perth in July 2004 to do a week of pre-production on the album. Along the way he added horns, strings and other instrumentation which saw the album's budget skyrocket. Universal Records refused to fund the album, meaning Dew Process were unable to continue recordings.
Washing Machine is the ninth studio album by the American experimental rock band Sonic Youth, released on September 26, 1995 by DGC Records. It was recorded at Easley Studios in Memphis, Tennessee and produced by the band and John Siket, who also engineered the band's previous two albums

The "Washing Machine" liners state that the album was recorded between January and May '95 - I'm not sure exactly when they were in Memphis. In any case, the album was probably mostly finished by the time they commenced their first tour since July 1993, a brief run through various Northeast colleges and universities in late April (in fact, the album's cover photograph was taken at the April 28th Amherst, MA show, indicating that the "Washing Machine" concept was already well under way). That said, I've completely ignored the album itself! "Washing Machine" is a fairly transitional record in SY's catalog. After a couple of records without any sprawling, lengthy songs (the longest song on Dirty was "Sugar Kane", clocking in at 5:56), "Washing Machine" offers several tracks that break their own previous records.
6 Things You Never Want to Do to Your Washing Machine. Adjusting the machine on the bottom corners takes a few minutes and makes a big difference. An unbalanced load makes the washing machine work a lot harder than it should have to which can ultimately lead to wear and tear on the unit and its parts.
