Notes from the show.

Some of the guys in the band were also in Let Me Crazy and The Livingbrooks, and possibly some other CC bands.

Their bandcamp stuff is not CC, but the QUR stuff is:

Tell us about your music and tell us what’s new!
Chris Baltrus - Lead Vocals and Guitar

AJ Bellise - Fender Bass, Radio Voice -- the young gun

Chris Morell - Fuzz Guitar and Vocals

David Aria - Drums and Percussion

Lineup changes!

Summer 2014 got together

Chris and Chris…”it just happens” took 5 years

Let Me burned to the ground

Television - band

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

Billy Joel



Hip hop

Twisted Sister

Both gearheads


1960 Mercury Comet: Mercury_Comet


Katrina album:

GED, What We Du not cut live on

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”

New album?
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


Matt Kurz

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): CC BY-NC-SA

Demo version:

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
