Daniel Johns and Paul Mac’s The Dissociatives was largely recorded in a two-week period over the English summer, where Daniel was living with his fiancée Natalie Imbruglia. The idea behind the songs that would become the Dissociatives project was to create a new band with a different set of rules, one that sounded nothing like what either of them had done before. The Dissociatives album came out April 5, 2004 in Australia, debuted at 12 on the ARIA chart, eventually selling 60,000 in Australia. Does it hold up today or is it a forgotten curio of the early 2000s?
