And Now, For Your Listening Pleasure…

by Andrew Osborne

So, a few months ago, my lovely Polish bride and I contributed a track called “Jello Low Tide” (featuring samples from a certain 1980s film you’ll have to guess for yourself and rhythms from Theremin supergroup The Lothars) to an omnibus album called The Fat Man’s Hat (a.k.a. The ’60s Project)

The aforementioned project was the brainchild of the Society for the Advancement of Hearing Loss, featuring Psychoneurotic Squeeb Band alumni, Moonflower, Eric Jacobson and George Nisula among other fine music practitioners, and their latest effort is a pair of  “children’s albums” Nap Time and Lunch Time (available, like The Fat Man’s Hat, on the SAHL website). 

(And be sure to enjoy “Sweet Zoo” by Lady Snerd, a.k.a. my contribution, featuring a lovely duet between my wife Amy and her own lovely self!)

    I believe you have stink lines coming from your hat. I am sad for both you and it although both you and your wife seem quite pleased by it.

    Eh, she’s used to it! (Although I actually thought they were stray Rasta hairs!)

    The CDs are in the mail to Kris, right?

    Yes! At long last! (Well, one CD, anyway!)

    Kris asked for three… We don’t all live in the same house.

    I’ll send two more, but I need to get to a Kinko’s first to print out the CD art (since I don’t have a color printer — unless you don’t care if the insert card is in B&W).

    Thanks, we can wait. 🙂

    Did those CDs ever get sent out?

    All of these tunes are available free at this web site:

    http://hearingloss.zapto.org/sahl

    So, as long as you have a computer all you need to do is download. That does mean you might have to option click on the file but they are available in MP3 or Wav.

    The art works there to download too.

    I’m well aware of that, Stephen. However, in exchange for the use of a sample of one of our songs, Andrew promised to mail us physical CDs when they were available.
