this is so cool! i appreciate the inclusion of pictures, backstory, and transcription of jimmy's notes.

Pinball King

The Eastern sounding synth parts remind me of Bruce Haack.

Joe

"Chant" is actually really neat. This kid had some talent. I wonder where he (and Shannah) are now.

marcus

this is really fun!
strange stuff ;-) - thanks!

What do I think ? ZOMG amazing ! What a shame this dude never got the attention he should have got. Only now, almost 20 years on, does he get the recognition he deserves. Awesome ! I demand that this album be flung to the furthest reaches of the internet in the slimmest of hopes that Jimmy may come forth from the shadows into the limelight... erm, when I say "demand", i mean "propose".

i found a tape sort of like this once, not sure where it is right now. the songs weren't nearly as weird as this, otherwise i'd try to find it to submit to 365. i don't remember who the artist was, but i do remember that it was addressed to a girl named april. well anyway, in my opinion, shannah would have to have been a fool not to fall for jimmy after receiving this tape!!

APRIL FOOL'S.

This is all Pea Hix's doing. I thought the premise sounded a bit silly and remembered Pea's Poor Music Project (which I stumbled upon while looking for info on the Optigan), but I didn't bother to check the site until today.

Then, of course, I found this. Note three of the same song titles.

Thing is, he's absolutely right. The appeal of a lot of the 365 stuff is its context. If this same post was introduced as "stuff by Pea's old band Fossil," it probably wouldn't be as appealing, but now it has a "story" behind it.

Excellent work, Pea. Keep 'em guessing.

well, i should mention that the basic context of my story here actually IS accurate. i recorded these songs mostly in my senior year of high school, 1988-89, for the amusement of my friends. i churned out lots of tapes like this, and the kind of girls i hung out with in school seemed to be impressed, or so i thought. though i cringe mightily whenever i review this material now, it's fun to use this stuff as raw material for art re-purposing experiments.

btw, i grunged up these mixes a bit for credibility purposes, so if anyone wants higher quality mp3's of these tunes (i've got lots more like 'em) just lemmeno.

oh, and here's the inevitable fossil myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/fossill

Aw, come on, Pea. This is like Borges' essay on Don Quixote. Of course it's all about context, and you're taking all the fun out of it.
