Roger borrowed (and later bought) a bass from a friend and set out on learning the old Mary Puppets songs and getting a feel for his new instrument. Responding to an add on the internet, Marcus Jonasson became the fourth member of Juniper Hill, filling out the vacant spot behind the drums, in November that same year. A month or so later a couple of new songs were written and the quartette went in to the studio to record their first demo: "Previously Unreleased 2.0" including some of the old recordings of Mary Puppets as well as two new songs, straight ahead punkrock anthem "Pull Me Out" and grungy semiballad "Queen For a Day". Some gigs were booked and things were looking bright with a lot of creativity flowing at the rehersals and new songs beeing written at a good pace.
Then, in the winter of 2004 Marcus decided to leave the band and move back to his hometown, Bollnäs. Devastated but unwilling to give up, Juniper Hill started the hunt for a new drummer and in january of 2005 hard hitting Anders Rimsten filled out the spot left by Marcus, bringing a fresh energy and a rawer sound to the band. A new five-track demo, "Bad Sex Year", was recorded in the summer of 2005. Some gigs (although nowhere near enough) were performed, new songs were written, further crystalizing the dirty, angry sound of Juniper Hill as it is today.
In the summer of 2006 another demo, "Don't Stop 'Til You Feel Teeth" was recorded, five hardhitting tracks in just over 15 minutes. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
