Put Out the Lights and Cry is a rec I recorded with my wonderful wife, Emily Shisko. Back in those days we were called Kettle Stitches, we were a rock band, and we were on the Whitehaus Family Record. A couple of my favorite tracks from the album are:
The Barnstable County Waltz:
Spring’s Eternal Work:
EARLY ELECTRONIC WORKS
Here’s an oldie — this track is called Washroom, because the main percussive element is plastic bathroom trash can of a house I used to live in. The house was almost entirely tiled. Also, all the electrical outlets were installed upside-down. We did have a ping-pong table though.
This’s another called Black, Dead and Cracked Heart. It was after a bad breakup/kind of an intense time. I like it though — in spirit I’m wicked goth, so…
Presumed to be (by its members and close associates) the greatest band of all time. We were very young and full of hope.
Live: crappy recording, great performance. No Choke Czechs from the Juice Bar in Orleans, MA. Featuring Morgan Shaker!
In the barn: Operation Hobart, from our tape. Featuring Atom Foam!
