Album Notes
An album of greatest non-hits. Meat Wheel News documents about ten years of Richard Leps and Rick Ferriss playing music together. The songs were recorded at various places around Tampa Florida from 1991 to 2000. Older mixes of some of the songs used to be available at mp3.com. In 2003 Rick remastered what seemed to be the best collection of available recordings, and a remix of Waves Sing was released in 2015 (as In the Waves, by Ferriss & Leps).

Meat Wheel News contains 13 original songs plus Stardust, the old Hoagy Carmichael/ Mitchell Parrish standard.

Violin by Richard Leps, vocal, acoustic guitar & bass by Rick Ferriss; drums on some songs by Ed Graham.

'Meat Wheel' refers to a poem by Jack Kerouac: Chorus 211 of Mexico City Blues. It begins: "The wheel of the quivering meat conception / Turns in the void expelling human beings, / Pigs, turtles, frogs, insects, nits / Mice, lice, lizards, rats, roan / Racinghorses, poxy bucolic pigtics, / Horrible unnameable lice of vultures... ".

Jean Thomas

an awesome culmination of their work together
The music on this CD is really fine. The artists have been playing music together for years and this is an awesome culmination of their work together. Emily Bowl is one of my favorites - it's so cool. Each song has its own character and all of them are good. It's especially fine to have heard the songs in their earlier recordings; to hear them so finely polished on this CD is a real treat!
