Few years ago, Eugene Chadbourne send me the files of our first concert in 1978. Some rogue PA engineer made a recording without telling us. Typical of the era. We were planning to release a CD out of it, but for many reasons I delayed it and the files went lost. Recently the files resurfaced in an old Hard Drive and I gladly started to work on it. With the latest technology I had the opportunity to clean, enhance and edit the tracks to perfection. It's worth to note my use of the fabulous Moog Percussion Controller. At that time a different sound for this kind of music. This concert was the beginning of a fruitful collaboration with Eugene and thanks to him I landed my first US tour and much more. Now this unique Album is ready for the fans of the most bizarre, entertaining and experimental improvised music.
