Album Notes
There are a lot of esoteric things going on here that were scattered all over the place i.e. cassettes, 1/4 inch reel to reels, 8 track tape, 24 track tape, PCM tapes, etc… This is an attempt to try to make some musical sense out of them. This CD is full of clues as to where stuff in future CDs came from and refer to. It's fast paced, absurd and no, Nick DiMauro and I were not stoned during some of the bizarre conversations. We were actually a few weeks away from taking a trip across the USA with my sister Laura so we took that anxious energy and filtered it through my home studio and let the cassette machine run. It was hot in the room (“We sweat a lot in here”), and I think that cooked our brains sufficiently to come up with a few funny musical improvisations.

The work is really broken up into two sections. The first half sort of ends around “Gorgo Twain”, finally leaving the Nick and John conversation and veering off into some musings that took place toward the end of Backdoor Records at Modern Voices recording studio circa 1989 -91. As soon as Meryl and I break into our silly improv "If It Don't Work" the CD becomes a little more conventional in it's approach. There is the occasional montage but mostly it's odd songs that never had a home until now. Basically, this disc is pointing its way to my first 24 track CD Life Here, It's Anybody's Guess.

It was a crazy time where the creative juices were so out of control I really did not know how to control them. Sonic Underground Studios came about around 1992. I finally found myself a base where I could take the time to really see what it was I was channeling. This CD is me working out the musical kinks. Self-Indulgent? You bet. Worthwhile art? Who's to say? More likely sincere sound buffoonery entertainment for a fan base I have yet to really identify. Perhaps I may never.
