The Arcade Fire formed in 2002 and later that same year recorded this EP, their eponymous debut. It was recorded in Mt. Desert Island, ME, USA. All music was written by Win Butler and his future wife Régine Chassagne. There were 200 copies of this rare, privately issued CD and it now sells for about $200-$250, if you can find a copy.
The album, also referred to as the "Us Kids Know" EP was later re-mastered and re-issued in 2005 on Rough Trade RTRADCD 248 (UK) and once again on Merge Records MRG 269 (USA).
