ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A modern day musical army consisting of one man and his plastic lawn snowman Vanilla, the Junior Science Club recalls the electronic rock of They Might Be Giants and the odd and witty lyricism of Randy Newman and Danny Elfman. With songs immortalizing noodles, nuclear reactions, robots, lizards, and the standard metric system, the Junior Science Club defy the trappings of novelty music through inventive, layered instrumentation and complex arrangements.

Goodbye, My 4-Track, a 22-song home-recorded epic, marks the first official Junior Science Club album release. Featuring guest performances by members of Death Cab For Cutie, Pedro The Lion, Tsunami Bomb, The Roots Of Orchis, Frisk and The Velvet Teen, Goodbye, My 4-Track includes new songs such as "Robot Cat" as well as new and improved versions of super-underground classics "Lizard and Fish," "Happy Noodle vs. Sad Noodle," and "Prosthetic Brain."

Logan entered the San Francisco Bay Area musical scene in 1995 as the drummer for Sonoma County pop quirksters Little Tin Frog. Their music, heavily influenced by Elvis Costello and the Talking Heads, inspired Logan to begin writing, recording, and performing his own compositions. Response for his first recordings, cassettes passed out to friends, was so enthusiastic that the mini-albums found an audience without even intending to.

In 1999, Logan found his audience through mp3.com. His first internet-based album, How Does An Electrostatic Motor Work? produced a minor hit in the song "Monkeys Are Bad People," which appeared on the internationally syndicated Dr. Demento Show. At this time, The Junior Science Club mp3.com site has had over 45,000 visits and over 100,000 song downloads. Logan's live solo performances, which began when he was asked to open a show for Frank Black and the Catholics, consist of Logan on keyboards and vocals, accompanied by prerecorded backing tracks, a plastic snowman, and the occasional guest musician.

Logan is currently playing drums and touring in the art-pop band The Velvet Teen, as well as continuing to produce high-quality home four-track recordings of new Junior Science Club compositions.

Not bad at all in any way.
Goodbye, My 4-Track is worth a listen. The songs are pretty decent, and there are a lot of guest musicians from fairly respectable indie bands as well. I don't know; I like it. Check it out if you will. If you buy it, you will get your very own copy in the mail.

Great science comedy
I really enjoyed this album. The tracks are not limited to a single music genre, and can appeal to kid, adults, and college students alike. The album is not entirely comedic, showing Logan's broader talent. His "When Werewolves Collide" paints a mysterious picture which blends werewolf stories to Dr. Jekylle and Mr. Hyde. If you buy it, stick around for a while after the final track listing. There's a reason why he says "April Fools."

Hands down made up.
One of the best album Logan did. There are very cleaver titles on this album like Prosthic Brain. Prosthic means an artifical organ replacement in the body.

I can't stop listening to it! Please help!
I was saddened by Logan's untimely death and I finally got around to listening to all of "Goodbye My Four Track". It is simply one of the most brilliant CDs that I have ever heard. Please buy it and see what I mean!

Oh,what fun!
My kids and I love to listen to this CD over, and over, and over. The only not so kid friendly track is the Ice Cream man one, but hey, voices in your head telling you to do evil things are something we all just have to get used to eventually.Favorite tracks are Robot Cat, Happy Noodle vs. Sad Noodle, and Mr. Pants. I am so grateful that this artist had a chance to share his wit and wisdom with us. This CD is fabulous- share it with someone you love!
