So Good! Somehow related- I'm wondering, do you have a rip of Harry Pussy's Let's Build a Pussy? I've been wanting to hear it forever, looking around the annuls of the internet, and then remembered about your (ostensibly) infinite wisom, the archive, etc. etc. any chance you have it lying around?

Hi Issac. Good to hear from you!

Ja, I have a copy, but it's not ripped. I haven't owned a turntable for ages.

You can recreate it easily enough - between bong hits, Orcutt took a one-second sample of an Adris Hoyos shriek and time-stretched it to 60 minutes, chopped it into four 15-minute segments, et voila -- farewell double album! Bill was a cynical, calculating fucker, but his solutions were no less elegant for his misanthropy. Bravo BO!

Hope all is well!
