Recorded in April and May of 2011 at UMass Lowell campus, "The Inadequate" contains variations of "Bastard Child" and "Bum Bum," songs originally performed by Aaron James Nicolas, Cody Nicolas, and Sara Holbert, as a three piece La De Les ensemble in 2009. La De Les felt the songs needed to be recorded, but that they did not fit the overall theme of the full-length Gadfly. They were approached by Josh Wilson with an opportunity to record two songs for his final project as a sound engineer at UMass Lowell. "The Inadequate" and "Two Servants" were the obvious choices.
