Theodore Vril - Ghost Talk (2007, unreleased)

Theodore Vril is the moniker that guitarist/songwriter/artist Ted Flynn has performed under for several years. His songs typically have a traditionial folk blues structure, but along with this structure comes some rather cosmic and experimental leanings. In a live setting Theodore Vril is often presented solo, guitar and voice, but also sometimes presented as a fully amped and blown out band, and that's what we have here. This past year I've played bass for the handful of shows that Ted decided to channel in that way. The current live trio also includes Scott Pickering on drums. This unreleased album documents a short inspired set spontaneously torn open by the ghosts that fueled the songs. Sometimes it happens that way. Recorded live at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland on August 25, 2007.

Cintron/Jones - Rain Gods (2002, unreleased)

The last track on the Speaker/Cranker - Plugs Into The Amps CD ( 2002 Holophone Recordings) was titled "That's How I Want To Be There". This was in fact an edited version (2:27) of a track taken from an unreleased recording session dating March 27, 2002, as a duo with Jim Jones. This original track, "Rain Gods" (7:47), became the name of this duo's subsequent recordings. None of Rain Gods material has yet been released.

Pufftube - A Harry Smith film soundtrack, 5.7.98 (unreleased)

This recording is of a live accompaniment to some of Harry Smith's early animated works ( more on Harry Smith and his films here). DJ Spooky and the Scott Davis Trio also provided soundtracks to this event that took place on May 7, 1998 at the Cleveland Public Theatre in Cleveland, Ohio. Scott Pickering has been working as Pufftube for well over 20 years. Occasionally working with collaborators, most frequently his brother Keith, this performance line-up was Scott Pickering, Keith Pickering, Jim Donadio and Dave Cintron. All were also involved at the time in the band Speaker/Cranker. This documents 1 of only 3 live appearances ever made by the extremely reclusive Pufftube.

Terminal Lovers - Evening's Lip CDr 2005

This super limited CD-R (15 copies) was an Unfortunate Miracle Records give away with the first 15 orders of the Terminal Lovers - Sacred and The Man 7" vinyl. It consisted of one track, Evening's Lip (11:37).

To give this a bit of context: Shortly after the release of the Drama Pit and Loan LP, Terminal Lovers started shifting more frequently towards experimental paths. The line-up fluctuated from week to week at these, largely unreleased, 2004-2005 basement sessions. Track personnel: Cintron (guitar, perc.) Scott Pickering (perc.), Chris Smith (guitar). Regarding these collaborators: Scott creates very tweeked sounds as Pufftube, and Chris works solo as Mammoth.
