about

This album was recorded over the summer of 2000 with about 7 or 8 handheld cassette recorders, with the exception of two songs that were done on a cassette 4-track sans EQ. I would gather the sounds I wanted from "hot spots" all over Lancaster: Tupack's Liquor, Toys R Us, American Way Thrift, The Sally, church, and Mike Coleman's pad. Then I'd gather the piles of tapes, largely unlabeled, and arrange the speakers in a sort of half-circle, put the tapes in and hit record on the one I was holding, over and over till it synced up just right. The master copy is long gone, as are second generations. I probably sold them at the parking lot of the Desert Inn when I was 18 or 19. This album is an unintentional psychedelic mess, a subliminal concept record about a fellow who is dreaming and cannot wake up. It's his journey... false awakenings, only to realize the dream continues.

Track Name: mayflower
Many a storm has this, I seen,
In the air we breathe
taking all he'd now not must make waste
but haste in thee, electrons see
your, mine, and hard may fade
but your garden may grow
and you're guardin' mayflower
Track Name: I'll Make You Famous
This one time I had this dream...
i was watching TV and I was watching TV and I was watching it
And the ants came of of the TV and...
oh no it's the BIG ants-
...and then i woke up
