Low Hanging Fruits and Vegetables
Volumes 1 - 4: 1996 - 2012
February, 21st, 2013
About a year ago my friend and poet Cameron offered to help me tie up a music project I started in 1996 and abandoned here and there due to many factors. One being, I know my limitations and have extreme creative A.D.D..–I'm already bored typing this in a normal person way (without all-caps and F words or made up nonsense). Along the way over 400+ songs ended up on cassettes in shoeboxes and then on hard drives. Some worked over and on until they were destroyed rendering my efforts foolish and loaded with digital ego.
A decent 55 demos survived and Cam helped sequence out two volumes, 13 tracks ea. for a 26 song release I shelved in the fall of 2012 due to finances. There will be no Kickstarter, crowdsourcing, etc., for a few reasons: One being I value my personal privacy more than begging publicly which I'd have to do to take your hard-earned money; and two, I have zero intents to perform live despite friends/musicians offering their support to be my backing band in public while you savages talk above each other and against each other. No, thank you. And three, there are deeper intents I have to make sure this set sees the light of day with a book of illustrations, photos, and more I don't have enough time or money to deal with compiling right now because of other projects and responsibilities to survive. I know my limitations but for now, here's the rabbit hole version of volumes 1 - 4, Low Hanging Fruits and Vegetables. Listen carefully, Silent Kit.

Zach Staas and Mark Muraski handled engineering and mixing on many songs recorded from 2009-2010. Mark Gustafson handled the engineering and recording / mix of the only live-performance band session recorded to date in Nov. of 2009 for SockMonkeySound.com.
