Song of Joy
A double cassette release with 26 songs and a multitude of friendly-friends contributions including two sabotaged songs by J-9, a couple songs by Nig, one by Nig’s pop and a song via Bilby. Slip on your long feminine shoes and dance to the joy, misery and absurdity of this collection.
This is a nice respite from whatever stylings I (Stove) adds to the Train with a half dozen songs at best. Maybe that’s what I like so much about this compilation. This album was produced at my house in Campbell which I had just moved into, but was away on a ski trip for a week, only to come home to a finished product which was plenty fucked up without my contribution.
It’s nearly impossible to listen through the entire album, but may I recommend:
- Mother Russia — A later release of this is cleaner, but I always loved it
- Strange — Dave’s pedal-steel makes this.
- One of Those Days — J-9 song—in her androgynous years. My favorite on the album. I want this played at my funeral!!!
- Into Greens — Inspired by Kevin on a boat in Fiji and a desire to rescue sea turtles flopping upside down on the deck.
- With Your Care — Just makes me feel good.
Live in the basement — VIDEO
The first of four Train live performances seen through the lense of Glousby. This will mean little to anyone who was not in attendance. Enjoyed by a cast of dozens in the smoke filled, coffee perfumed basement of the Los Gatos Coffee Roasting Co.
