If you’ve been following all along here on my blog, Facebook, Twitter, and on Google+, I’ve been talking about the fact of the existence of a bootleg audio recording of my 21st birthday concert from August 29, 1977 at Ratso’s in Chicago. Now, I want to release it as an official project in a limited edition numbered two CD set of no more than two thousand copies.
This is a very cool, edgy concert that features 27 songs, and 15 original Skafish compositions that have never been released in any form, totaling up to around 88 minutes of music. Keep in mind that this is a bootleg quality recording, and comparable to other official bootlegs that have been released in the marketplace.
As any of you who know my work would expect, the music incorporates many styles, and is for the person who likes subterranean underground rock music that is really “out there.” Most of the songs were written and first performed throughout Chicagoland in 1976. These songs (along with the music from my CD (“What’s This? 1976-1979”), gave birth to the Chicago punk, new wave, and underground scene. For the Skafish fan who likes the edgiest part of my work, this is the record for you!
Since I’ve always been supported by unique individuals, see how you can be a part of this grassroots project in a way that has never happened before. Your help in getting it out there would be greatly appreciated! To learn more what you can do to contribute to make it happen, click here: http://kck.st/JabAwc
