HIT RECORD? HIT RECORD! (chapter one) is both a question, and a way of life...a koan for all of you who love music......based on the philosophy of recording EVERYthING! and letting the chips fall where they may.......... this is the first in a series of three releases with this title, chapters one, chapter two and chapter three. Each member of the band took the the same set of lyrics and wrote music for them, allowing us to come out with several versions of each one of ten songs, starting with a simple taste of the newly purchased and very much Used autoharp..........The first chapter in the series features the 15 minute mega opus "Breakfast with R. Stevie Moore", which takes a hard right turn where revolution #9 left off.....and the soon to be heavily rotated radio staple "foriegn song"......another perspective on the 28,000 cd essay, found elsewhere on this webworld.....lots of tasty electric, some nice improvs, and much rich density......a must have. Do you hate people who drive and talk on the phone? if so, you have to have this tape!!...... also includes the much awaited "Lobster on a Moped" and "The Reverend" Himself weilding lead throat on "Dog catcher of LOVE"..........total running time over an hour and fifteen minutes long!!!!!!!!!!!!!........this is clearly the best tape we've ever done- or at least the LONgesT.....with chapters two and three to follow. includes the actual voice of mr. moore himself, bits for our spanish speaking listeners, dialogue from joel the pole, and baby quintessential noise experimentalism........get this one quick before chapter two comes out and you fall behind.....
