Wacky Recordings

These recordings aren't necessarily meant to be taken seriously. They have humor value or historical context that may only be appreciated by those "in-the-know." Often the quality is low, as these were not intended to be audiophile-grade recordings.

Title MP3 Info Description
Ben's Maggots 744KB [0:47] 128Kbit 44.1KHz Recorded in the Spring of 1995 in Alden Hall (during New Voices 13) to 2-track cassette. Features Ryan Smart (vocals, guitar), Steve Richardson (bass), and Mike Andrews (maggots). The song was written by Ryan Smart and Christine Jesensky. This is an historic piece detailing the maggot incident after Limey's nasty car accident in December of 1994. A true classic in the spirit of Woodstock, the Beatles, and that static you get between radio stations. For the ultra-curious, the lyrics are on the web.
Hydroponics (are a bitch) 2652KB [2:46] 128Kbit 44.1KHz Recorded in the Spring of 1995 in Alden Hall (during New Voices 13) to 2-track cassette. Remixed July 1999 at Tangent Studios mk III (added crowd, reverb, etc). Features Ryan Smart (ranting), Steve Richardson (bass), Mike Andrews (saxophone). This song was completely improvised when we were trying to come up with goofy introductions for the New Voices festival. I started in with the bass line and Ryan went to town with the words.
Country intro 415KB [0:53] 64Kbit 24KHz Recorded in the Spring of 1995 in Alden Hall (during New Voices 13) to 2-track cassette. Features Ryan Smart (crooning) and Steve Richardson (wash basin guitar). Yet another improvisation. Again, I started playing and Ryan kicked in with the words.
"Cool Cat" intro (take 1) 776KB [1:39] 64Kbit 24KHz Recorded in the Spring of 1995 in Alden Hall (during New Voices 13) to 2-track cassette. Features Ryan Smart (cool cat), Mike Andrews (saxophone), and Steve Richardson (bass). Another improvised intro for the festival. Please don your beret before downloading.
"Cool Cat" intro (take 2) 829KB [1:46] 64KBit 24KHz Recorded in the Spring of 1995 in Alden Hall (during New Voices 13) to 2-track cassette. Features Ryan Smart (cool cat), Mike Andrews (saxophone), and Steve Richardson (bass). Another take on the same idea as above.
"Smells Like New Voices" intro (take 1) 336KB [0:43] 64Kbit 24KHz Recorded in the Spring of 1995 in Alden Hall (during New Voices 13) to 2-track cassette. Features Ryan Smart (Kurt) and Steve Richardson (guitar). Kickin' it one time, flannel style.
