The Love Substitutes are a band for music store browsers. Like the people that go to recordstores to endlessly browse in the collection, and end up buying a CD they already have, just because it is such a great CD to buy.
The Love Substitutes mostly improvise. For their first CD they spent a day-and-a-half in the studio, recorded 17 tracks, and then spent 4 days mixing. Playing live they do a 50/50 mix of existing material and improvisation.
