1940 - “Indian Summer”
This piece was started in 1989 when I had short lived studio on Magazine Street. From there I moved over to Ken Devine’s kitchen on Fig Street on the edge of Gert Town. The track was made with Carol and Amasa . I had a Casio synth guitar back then and made some string mush. Cornell Williams, one of New Orleans finest bass players and singers, is also a great whistler. This is dedicated to Anita Softness, Ken’s wife who was in med school during this time and put up with coming home to find me mixing in her kitchen. She’s Dr. Softness now. 1989-92
Hey you there, do you love Jeffrey Lewis? Do you love Peter Stampfel? Are you intrigued by the notion of music that has spent so many years secretly soaking in laughter and joy that it is now downright psychedelic to look upon? Both Ways is the culmination of a decade's friendship and mutual inspiration, a behemoth of a double album, spectacular, unique. It is a signpost for drifting souls. Listen, laugh, wonder, delight, be made new. And play Orgone Accumulator fucking LOUD. Grain Sparrow
