Latin Tang

Back when I moved into the then-gentrifying Wicker Park neighborhood, I was under the impression that I would be having a whole lot of cross-cultural sex. Sigh...

Chicken Train

This is aparently a cover of an Ozark Mountain Daredevils song. I am utterly unfamiliar with that band or their version of the song. In college, a firend sang the song to me once, and years later I recorded this from what I could remember. I was trying to do a gospel thing, but the sort of gospel you would hear in that church portrayed in the last scenes of X: The Man With the X-Ray Eyes.

Smart Bar

If you were ever in that cave below The Metro in the early 90's, tripping balls, you may know what I was trying to get at in this song. Otherwise, just crank it up and enjoy the ride.

Champaign Song

Sitting around the living room of a green house in Champaign, IL with a 7' cartoon chicken on the lawn, sometime around 1990, Jim Potts and I threw this together. A couple years later, we made this recording, with Mark Schwarz engineering.

A fairly straightforward narrative. Recorded on 16 track, 1" tape, as was the custom at the time. I played tenor sax, yelled some stuff, and played or programmed all the electronic stuff. Recorded and mastered at the legendary Flat Iron Studio in Wicker Park (well, legendary to Screeching Weasel and Ralph Colvert fans, I guess).
