The First of Many Installments of Me

Good news and bad news.

Good news: less me using hurt words

Bad News:  more me making hurt sounds--you know, CEF or Shwe owei cwded leehdas or the Hated Music or the Beloved Music or my new favorite "Crazy people music" or what ever it is you want to call it.

Soap and Water Country Boy by the Leonard Skrowaczewski Zappa trio featuring Wyatt Doyle.

Soap and Water Country Boy  features the sadly defunct and sorely missed Leonard Skrowaczewski Zappa trio with the addition of Wyatt Doyle on vocals.  The track was recorded at KEXP in Seattle for a show called Sonarchy hosted by Doug Haire.

The recording was a lot of fun.  Doug Haire was a joy to work with.  A fast set up and a great sound within minutes.  No excruciating microphone gymnastics or endless knob twiddlery.

Much of Wyatt's content is only meaningful to a handfull of people--lines like "That was the Little Man...the Little Man" resonate more fully with some than with others.  The rest of are accessible to all:  "Well, not the Jesus Christ, but a Jesus Christ."

The show was supposed to be for live broadcast.  It was not.  It was eventually broadcast, but according to those listening, as soon as the words started, the live transmission ended.  HA!  I think they went to a baseball game maybe?

More material from this session can be found here.

Stay tuned for more me!
