Shadowy Men From a Shadowy Planet: wikipedia
Baltrus is a songwriting extraordinaire
20 years since they met...Chris was really punk
A beat-up Gibson base...hanging on the wall...quorum rec center

Put on tape for saturation
Quiet and loud are further apart than on conventional records
More-or-less recorded in same place
Let’s record an album?
Too many songs?
“Baby wanted to come out”
Leaving work for a month is not really an option
Not a lot of marianation
Never at a loss for material.
Don’t be stingy! Illusion of suspense?
“A picture in time”
Early next year
Arrogant Sons of Bitches connection!
Loses more than it makes, but not about money
Wasn’t a bad breakup. Jeff and Chris too much alike about writing music. ASOB was in limbo due to upheaval. 2003 went out on the road. 2007 reunion.
“Do it the best you can”
BTMI came through but couldn’t make it to Baton Rouge...and kidnapped him
The Fad maybe not there...Jimmy Doyle
That’s the beginning of Let Me Crazy
AJ can interject into dialogue.
Dave left, but it came together with him
“trouble in river city”
Where did the project name originate?
Obviously, there’s a surf connection… but Beechcraft_Bonanza
Dodge the Death Ray
He trusts Jeff. The concept of letting people hear it is good. “The honor system”
Is there anything else you would like to say/tell us about?
A couple gigs...23rd: Rock Against Racism
Closing track: Yr Excused (lost some letters from the demo version): http://www.quoteunquoterecords.com/qur086.htm CC BY-NC-SA
Demo version: https://beachcraftbonanza.bandcamp.com/track/youre-excused
One take! Didn’t want to do it, but had a break and it came together
A true one, no backup! Very jammy. Lots of polyrhythms
