tip of the iceberg

Some of the titles I've just uploaded to Twango have been posted just below.

Many many more have not.

Until they are (eh, sometime soon), they're all on Twango.

the mighty fine MemoMate

Circa 1998, I saw a cool little 20-second memo recorder on sale at the Building 19 in New Bedford MA. So I drove over there and got me a couple.

On one of them I found this cool message recorded no doubt by a super busy factory worker doing quality control . . .

Chinese Checker and Tone

Perhaps someone can tell us if the message is the Mandarin or Cantonese equivalent of "testing 1-2-3".

Hope to post some more MemoMate recordings in the sweet by and by.

3:13 AM, Instrumental Frenzy, I'm Off, Afterdinner Outerlude

3:13 AM

(UPDATE: 3:13AM and the rest are on Bengal Burlap, available at Bandcamp.)

I was always kinda happy with this instrumental. I had a bass, that Synsonics drum machine and a flanger. I played something that resembled a melody (not something I'm entirely adverse to doing) without concerning myself with having a real guitar.

Instrumental Frenzy

When I did get a real guitar, this was about the first thing I did. Urgent Zebra may've been the second.

I'm Off

Before said real guitar, my friend Dom or someone loaned me one of those electric fan powered gadgets, a Magnus Chord Organ. My friend Bob, who could actually play, played the organ. Flanging everything in sight, I did the rest. All in view of the Corner rooftops of C'ville and the HoJo MoLo sign.

Afterdinner Outerlude
