's/t' (Log Cabin Recordings)

Double Cassette / 2 c30s
These are not songs per se. It's free improvisation using guitars, drums, electronics and assorted noise makers. There may be some banjo and voice on there as well. It's def a weird listen, without completely loosing the rock element. Because it was recorded in living rooms of the band members, it has kind of a cool and easy living room jams feel. A few really 'out' jams as well.
