about

The last of my rescued "Album a Day" selections is my first solo outing, Squeezing the Baby Envelope." On January 9th, 2004, I set up in my bedroom at my parent's house with a really great keyboard that I had borrowed from Jamile Jackson. I think it was some kind of Yamaha tablehooter, but the memory has faded. All I can recall is that he found it at the Salvation Army on Beach Boulevard and I was insanely jealous that he got to it before I did. But Jamile let me hold on to it for a bit, so it was cool. All of the songs were recorded using Cool Edit and this keyboard.

Unfortunately for me, this album contains some of the worst song titles I have ever conjured up. I mean - "Hubert: Creamy Towel?" For that matter - Squeezing the Baby Envelope? Such a shame, because I actually really love these songs and am proud of the outcome.

The Original Note from the Album a Day Project:
"I decided to go solo (from the Darth Vader Farmers) on this album a day. It features a keyboard I borrowed from a friend of mine direct into my computer and recorded in Cool Edit. This album is ambient and noisy, giving it a Merzbow meets The Residents feel. Recorded 1-9-04."
