He withdrew his daughters, Helen, Dorothy, Betty & Rachel, from school, bought them instruments and set them up with music and voice lessons, and had the girls practice playing their instruments for a good five years straight. Austin went so far as to book them to play on Saturday nights at the Fremont, New Hampshire Town Hall, but their ineptitude at playing only resulted in the other kids picking on them. Undeterred, Austin booked a single day at the Fleetwood Recordings studio, where it became abundantly clear to the befuddled engineer that the girls weren't ready to record. Austin reportedly replied "I want to get them while they're hot." The end result, such as it is, was named ''Philosophy Of The World.''

* ConMan: The man Austin hired to press 1000 copies of ''World'' reportedly took 900 copies along with the money and ran. That's why original pressings are obscenely expensive.

* EstablishingSeriesMoment: Put off by "Philosophy of the World"s arrhythmic beat, flat sing-speak vocals and hopelessly amateurish instrumentation? Well get ready for ''eleven more tracks'' of it.

* ThePerfectionist: [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Believe it or not]], while recording, the band had a tendency to stop recording over a perceived error. This (further) confused the poor engineer who thought they ignored more major flaws like the whole "couldn't sing or play or keep in time" problem.

The band did have a second recording session in 1975, where, amongst other songs, they did [[CoveredUp a cover of]] "Yesterday Once More" by the Music/{{Carpenters}}. The sessions never materialized into a full album, as the sessions were aborted after [[DownerEnding the death of Austin Wiggin.]]
