Merkins - Bon-Bardo (1995)


This is the second tape we have from the Merkins. It's less muddy than yesterday's posting, thanks in part to a midnight session at Sundae Sound. Jeff tells us that "Bizarro" was put down in one take. Which is the opposite of what at least one of us at the CCPS did in a similar midnight session (the individual in question may have spent the entire 8 hours recording a song that was one and a half minutes long).

Anyways, we're drifting from the main point of concern with this tape, which is the cover art. We've seen a lot of appropriation in terms of imagery here at the CCPS, but this is the first instance where we've seen a cover outright stolen.

But, really, it's not about the art. It's about the music. Which is a sort of art, so we suppose it is about the, uh, art.
