ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Embattled New York-based songwriter John Kessel has been performing since the eighties. A self-taught multi-instrumentalist with excellent compositional, vocal, and performance skills, he nonetheless had trouble finding musicians capable of playing his work (and fewer who could read charts for the jazz/punk fusion he was doing at the time.) His solution: to record an album-length musical resume entitled Born Late, mostly done alone on a cassette- oriented 8 track at home. Basically an anthology of his first era of recording, Born Late is Indie Rock Eclectica Supreme, alternating from country punk, folk blues, white noise, tape manipulation, pure pop, R&B, garage rock, vaudelville, and even some tiki lounge- all in the space of 46 minutes!
