SUCCOTASH 7-8/91

After spending the first months of 1991 mastering the Wild LP for release, and trying to form a couple of bands (nothing doin). I relaxed for a while and put together the Succotash album. It's straight forward power stuff with some intermixed polyphonic pieces making use of delay stack tracks. It's pretty hard hitting but kinda mellow at the same time, go figure.

INSTITUTION 2/92

Wherever this album came from, I don't know. Since late 1991 was a slow period, when I started working on the Godfathers LP in February of '92, I came accross a bunch of uncompleted songs in my working folder. These songs were for the most part shored up and finished, and they became Institution. Nothing fancy, just lots of power chords, 7/8 time, and screaming!!

GODFATHER 2-5/92

I wrote most of this LP while on vacation in the beautiful Cobb County Correctional Institute, then finished it by preparing all the music in the first few weeks of freedom.. This LP isn't about gangsters per se, but about the biggest gang of all, Uncle Sam's System. These songs reek of anger, frustration, and irony.

RUMOURS CAN KILL 6-7/92

I put together a great band in the summer of 1992, with Philbro on drums and Mark Spellman, a prodigy, on the bass. Some of the songs we were working on came from LP's over the last couple of years prior, and some new ones were spun off and became the Rumours Can Kill EP. As good as the band was, for too many reasons it never really got off the ground, each one of our gigs was a mix between brilliance and complete disaster. I feel that 'ol black magic a workin'.
