Recorded live through one mic hanging from the ceiling sometime in maybe 1992/3? I remember it was wintertime is all, really. We'd acquired a large metal trash can and strung some guitar strings over the open end, which worked quite nicely for the internal reverb of the can. This was "Thing #2", the first being a much smaller but still beautiful metal and strings contraption, played by bow more than as percussion, as the piece presented here is.
The people playing on this track were 1/2 from the record shop we worked in and from the Velvet Smith band, and 1/2 from the KC Art Institute, which was about a 1/2 mile away from the shop. Virgil Rhames took the mic and did vocals. Mike Czech played guitar, and I played bass. All others were attacking Thing #2.
Just a happy memory from a small practice space next door to an "adult bookstore" on 16th Street in downtown KC back in my day. I look forward to many more of this sort.

Happy Birthday, Virgil!

This is now a home for unreleased live recordings, archives and 3" cds. ... more
