"It's Really Great To Not Be Here Tonight #487" by Martin Blands Randomized Control Trials

Here is another leftover version of a track from the 120 cd's project. The voices on here are from some old 78's that people used to record themselves as letters to friends and relations back in the 1940's and '50's. In fact, you can hear one guy complaining that the recording machine doesn't work and he's going to take it back to the guy that sold it to him. I would dearly love to find one of these machines today.
The musicians on this one are
Tom Price- guitar and organ, Steve Dukich- baritone guitar and bass, Mark Arm- piano. Martin Bland- drums, Jim Knodle- trumpet, Janis Wildy- electric violin.

Trailer for "Calimari Union" featuring "Love Theme" by Bloodloss

Here is a trailer for a movie called "Calimari Union". The music is a track by Bloodloss called "Love Theme". The movie is by Richard LeFevre and is a recent remake of another older film also called "Calimari Union". This version seems to feature some familiar faces plus some that I don't know. Looks pretty "gritty".

"Oamtanlt #198" by Martin Blands Randomized Control Trials

Here is another leftover version of this piece. The voices are culled from a bootleg tape of the Altamont concert (obvious to some, maybe not to others). There's a lot more banter on the tape, both amongst the crowd and from the stage, but is usually accompanied by Stones music and therefore of no use to me.

Another tune. This one features the toy piano stylings of my Mother-In-Law, Dorothy Ramsey and a haiku by her husband, Jerry. The artwork accompanying this piece is by Alberta/Seattle/Louisiana artist Aaron Golson. For more cool fauna, check out his MySpace page under the nom-de-plume Deadly Devout

Bloodloss "Soundtrack From the Musical 'Bloodloss'"

Here is side 2 of the Bloodloss 10" "Ten Rock Solid Inches Of Rock Solid Rock". I assume this will never be released on CD so here it is in the "MP3" format. This was all done with good old tape technology. I'm sure computer sound programs such as pro-tools were available at the time but we didn't have access to them. I doubt this would not have been as much fun to make if we had used them anyway.
