Title: "The Singles"
Personnel: ? Jaron Eno Erik Charles Mike Jesse Cory Jay Chad ?
01 - The Ballad of the Young Hustler (2:22)
This is a demo tape we received at the record store where I work. Hopefully this guy eventually sent his tape to the right place.
02 - You Know What I Am Talking About (4:25)
Wow, this is stupid. Sometimes I amuse myself by using a looping pedal and pretending I'm The Bobs. Usually I have the good sense to not record the results.
03 - Bathroom (3:54)
This may have been recorded before Brown Rainbow technically existed, but Jaron says it's Brown Rainbow to him. Two people in a bathroom making noise.
04 - Shame/Anchor (4:50)
One day Jesse called and said that today we were going to get together and make one song. And here it is. Many layered duets...maybe ten layers? The hiss on the original recordings was incredible, and removing the hiss gave everything a pixelated cavernous sound that fake reverb can only pretend to hide. Lyrics improvised by Jesse.
05 - Great Set, Man (11:05)
This is another delay pedal caprice of mine, but it's a lot better than track 2. I think so, at least.
06 - Intention Song (3:27)
Well, we'll see if this one stays up. Jesse (and Joe) wrote lyrics and asked me to put them to music. I did so, and this is the result. Jesse has grand plans for this song, including a video and I think an impromptu rooftop performance somewhere. He may not "authorize" this "release" of the song, but THAT'S TOO BAD CUZ HERE IT IS.
07 - Cory Richter (13:59)
Jesse, Eno, and (presumably) Cory make a godawful racket. Kind of a brutal free jazz thing.
08 - Varenka (9:50)
Mike gave this to Brown Rainbow back near the end of 2002. Sounds nice and gentle after that last track, eh?
09 - Everyone Else Was Swimming (5:54)
Or so I thought. Recorded using the built-in microphone on my mp3 player, which is why it sounds a bit harsh. I considered adding some phony reverb to smooth it out some, but I decided I liked it better raw.
10 - Incidental Music (6:41)
Don't expect this to go anywhere. It's just background noise for your drama-filled life.
11 - The King of the Greens (9:01)
Hanging out on the porch with the Juiceman.
