tiTannic SoundTrack is the longest nobody release to date, but don't let that scare you! recorded in chunks between sessions for the nearly now legendary 'BlackGrasS' sessions and the taping for 'Hit Record? HitRecord! Chapter Two' the 'soundtrack' contains a very diverse and exciting group of songs....from the super reverbed opening track 'please don't' which recalls the long begone days of George Jones and Tammy Wynette and their many explorations into the world of flexible time, to the semi-indian sounding 'two string mall', and the sophisticated slop of 'ambient eggs', there's something here for everyone. Virtually all of the instruments in the nobody musical instrument petting zoo and noise making arsenal were used on this tape in one form or another, including but not limited to: the theremin, the musical saw, the sitar, the didgeridoo, coffee cans, ukes, two stringed guitars, musical saw, accordian, and more.......
While tiTannic SoundTrack does NoT contain any vocal performances by the likes of Celine Dion or anyone of her 'ilk', it does contain the usual vocal harmonies and melodies we have come to expect from the group, and also includes special guest appearances by the legendary trio of Brian Melillo, Joel Krautstrunk and Colleen Dwyer, also known to the folk world as the Four Arpeggios. Of course, there's also some tasty lo-tech sampling done with a really sticky pause button and some beeswax and an answering machine, but hey, what would a tape be without 17 tracks of wah-wah pedaled guitar all dumped onto a single 1/32 of an inch tape?
as a special bonus, not unlike Crayolafishes, each tape comes with an individualized, one of a kind hand made cover, probably worth lots and lots once we are dead and reincarnated as parking meters.........
