Album Notes
The Clear album by Conveniens was originally released in 1987. Pressed on clear virgin vinyl using the DMM process [Direct Metal Mastering], the package also included a clear jacket with silver imprint through-out.

This is a 2008 re-release of Clear on CD. Remastered audio, the package comes in a clear jewel case W/clear jacket, wrapped in a clear jewel case cover with silver imprint on a mirror disc.

During the original promotional campaign, copies of Clear constantly disappeared from DJ booths, radio stations and press offices, inhibiting exposure. Clearly a most collectible release, also the third and last of Conveniens' vinyl LP trilogy.

NOW/, the re-release of Clear on enhanced CD [add. crit. on disc] reveals Conveniens. As a radio station music director once put it, "In a word, this is "hardcorenewagejazz".

Conveniens is still; John MAz [drums] and DAvid Sterling Smith [keyboards].

Clear brings forth the addition of session players:

Tom JonusAitis [from noted Chicago punk band, Bonemen of Barumba] - accordion, bass, vocals
Ted Blood BuchAnAn [from the Buchanan Brothers Trio, and appearances on Chicago's WGN Bozo's Circus] - tenor sax
The late GerrAld Hill [Saucer Plane] - flute
Lori PAyne [Girlfriend] - cabassa, banshee vocal

Also, recording engineer lAin Burgess and graphic artist J-MAx Kennedy are apex.

Regretfully, a transparent CD could not be issued along with the clear packaging. However, a previously unreleased track [XI] was added. It's all about the music constituents.


MAzmAn - Features the drums [textural] with synth builds to a crescendo.

Night CAution -An unlit goth road [only as far as your headlights see] tape loop, hypnotic cymbals, acoustic grand piano string plucking, special engineering to create voices [tension].

EfiltsitrA - Grand piano solo, relief from the tension.

DA DA Ack - Hardcore pop art music, adds the accordion keys, with synth and drums [a tight tune].

Rowte 66 - It is not Route 66 [the title is even copyrighted], this is what we came up with [adds the sax and bass].

DeAth By Poetry - Hip hop Conveniens style adds accordion, vocals, deserves notice.

BAll PArk Song - Snap krackle pop, you're at the ballgame vendors organ hotdog.

Electroflux - Extended, persistent, drums, synth, add an electric razor, percussion, grunts, voices, screams in an electrified goth mode [there are some precious moments].

CAdium Red -A relief piece to the lighter side, flute with piano.

Rolling - Trad. opening with strong 2/4 beat, drums, piano, synth, add the sax, they take it down then go into hyperdrive with a de-crescendo finish.

Epilogue [bonus track not on original vinyl LP release] -A studio jam urged by lain Burgess after working on Rolling, done in one take [sax, piano, bass, drums].

Conveniens Clear (Hardcorenewagejazz) is for the connoisseur of the unique, eclectic and artistic.


Conveniens Clear is an E-CD, additional crit. via computer and other enabled equipment.
