The Internet Tracks are a collection of demos, unfinished songs and some alternate takes and unmastered versions, conceived around the same time as the track that eventually did end up on To Record Only Water For Ten Days. It is believed that all of these songs were from the recording sessions for the said album. The tracks were originally given on a master CD to Ralph Paredes, by John and he was asked to get them on the Internet for free, for the fans. At that time, a lot of these songs were being leaked on the net, and John wanted people to hear them in their best quality. One of the copies of the burnt CDs was sent to the then-webmaster of John's official website and the master CD was returned to John's then-manager.
After this, the story took a twist. The songs were uploaded in small groups during the month of August 2001 with additional tracks added in October, as 160 Kbps Windows Media Audio files, and the majority of the tracks were given random titles. Eventually, the collection was renamed to an internet album named From The Sounds Inside, based on a poll on the titles submitted by fans. The other suggested titles were Live Above Hell, Penetrate Time, "i", Into Infinity, With Love, The Battle Of Time, Purity and I Go Through These Walls.
During the second incarnation of the official site, the tracks were described like this:
This material, which has never been published on a commercial album, was made available for free to all John fans in August 2001.These songs are are a personal gift from John Frusciante, to you the fans. (Please do not ever attempt to sell these tracks on eBay or use them in any other commercial way)
As the third incarnation of the official site was very minimal and the current might look good but it's containing only the blog and store pages; these tracks are yours to download here. As of 03rd January 2013, they're available in two formats: 320 Kbps mp3 and FLAC, thanks to the person who originally got the master CD from John.
What Happened Next?
So Would've I and Beginning Again I surfaced as B-sides of the Going Inside maxi CD.
Leave All The Days Behind, initially known under its fan title Cut Myself Out resurfaced as one of the tracks on the soundtrack for Vincent Gallo's film, Brown Bunny.
Saturation and Fallout were obviously released on To Record Only Water For Ten Days and played live.
Beat Down, How High and Low Birds were all played live, under the said names. The last was known under three different fan-given names: Lou Bergs, Penetrate Time and Purity. However, according to the All Tommorrow's Parties setlist from 2005, Low Birds is its name.
All of the above songs were played live on at least one occasion, while the others were not, and their titles were deliberately given to them either by fans or the former website staff. The real names of the other tracks might or might not be what you see here. They might have not been planned for a proper release at all. The only things that have been changed regarding those provisional names are misspellings in two tracks: Three Thoughts and Innerstate Sex, which were written as Three Throughts and Interstate Sex.
