So, Why Exactly Did Cianciusi Ditch JFA?

Harry Pussy: Microgroove, Atlanta (3 May 97)

Orcutt rang me up as HP were entering the final leg of their farewell trek. They needed material for a raft of split singles, or at least wanted recordings that could later be parsed to various labels. No prob. (Menlo Park, Klang, and De Stijl were the eventual recipients.) I'd organized a gig for the Pussies and Silver Apples anyway, so it made sense for them to take advantage of some studio time.

The Econoline pulled into Howard Avenue in Decatur around 10:00 PM. They loaded in, I set up a few mikes, got levels, shot a roll of film, then hit sync on the ADAT controller. We were done by two...

I mixed everything down the week after the Atlanta gig, sent a disc off to Miami Beach, and that was that.

Below please find the complete session, extracted directly from the original stereo master.

Hello! Is there any way to get a copy of this May 3, 1997 Harry Pussy recording? I would love it so very very much. Thank you!

Sorry, Jet, but it would be unethical for me to make it available as it was recorded. I've not asked either Adris, Dan, or Bill for permission, and I'm sure they prefer to be the direct beneficiaries of any posthumous glory. No, overlain with Michael Bolton will have to suffice.

Thanks for posting, however!
