about

BACK IN OCTOBER 2010, I WAS RANDOMLY IN NEW YORK FOR A FEW DAYS. THROUGH FRIENDS (AND ON VERY SHORT NOTICE) I GOT A FEW WHITE RAINBOW GIGS LINED UP.

THIS ALBUM IS RECORDINGS OF THOSE THREE LIVE SHOWS.

THE FIRST SHOW WAS FOR A YOGA CLASS AT DUSK ON TOP OF A DERELICT BUILDING IN BUSHWICK. THE ROOF LOOKED OUT DIRECTLY ONTO THE JMZ ELEVATED SUBWAY PLATFORM. THE SQUEALS OF THE TRAINS MIXED WITH THE SOUND OF THE TWO SHITTY PRACTICE AMPS I WAS PLAYING THRU WHILE AROUND 30 OR SO PEOPLE DID YOGA. THE SUN SET, DAY TURNED TO NIGHT, PEOPLE GOT CALM. I CAUGHT A WOMAN THE NEXT BUILDING OVER WATCHING US IN CURIOSITY. I WONDERED WHAT SHE THOUGHT. THE RECORDING HAS LOTS OF KILLER WIND NOISE BURSTS!

THE SECOND SHOW WAS A LAST MINUTE JUMP-ON WITH A BUNCH OF YOUNG COOL BANDS @ THE ALL AGES VENUE "MONSTER ISLAND BASEMENT". I PLAYED EARLY AND QUICKLY TO THE FEW FRIENDS OF MINE THAT SHOWED UP. I HEARD IT GOT CROWDED FOR THE REST OF THE SHOW, BUT IT WAS JUST AMBIENT AIR HORNS AND COW BELL BLASTS TO A HALF EMPTY ROOM FROM ME...

THE THIRD SHOW WAS THE NEXT NIGHT AT A SECRET LOFT WAREHOUSE LOCATION DEEP IN AN OTHERWISE COMPLETELY HASIDIC NEIGHBORHOOD. THE PA WAS BIG BUT THE BASS KEPT ON CUTTING OUT. BILLED AS A RECORD RELEASE SHOW FOR ONE OF THE OTHER ACTS THAT PLAYED, IT WAS BASICALLY A PARTY WITH KEGS AND LOTS OF PEOPLE I DIDN'T KNOW. I AGAIN ASKED TO PLAY EARLY... AND HAD FUN MAKING A COOL PARTY GROOVE AND DOING SOME AD-LIB TALKIN AND TOASTING ON TOP. TOLD PEOPLE WHERE THE BEER WAS AND STUFF.

SO IN THE END, ONE VERY "AMBIENT" SET AND TWO PSYCHEDELIC POST HYPHY PARTY SETS

PLEASE ENJOY!

ALL TRACKS RECORDED LIVE BY MY GOOD FRIEND AND FELLOW MUSICIAN DAVID FARRELL (CHECK OUT DORMANT & LOCATE/MODULE)! THANKS DAVID FOR TAPING THESE SETS! AND THANKS TO TODD P, THE MARKET HOTEL, VIBES MANAGEMENT AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT HELPED ME PLAY THESE AWESOME LAST MINUTE SHOWS.
