Here’s another “gem” from the past. I’m noticing a lot of these CD’s are labelled 1999. We must have gotten a CD burner then or something, because a lot of these tracks (on this CD and others) were recorded before then.
Big Booty Ho Night. Not much to say about this one. The artwork is probably better than the music. Consider yourself warned.
Tracks 1 through 10 are labelled Music From the One Night Album (Circa Christmas 1998). I think that title pretty much sums up the quality of this group of songs. If I had to choose a favorite, I’d have to go with Hong Kong Buffet.
Mike: Actually, let me interject here too and talk about particular favorite of Joe and I’s, “Lonesome Cowboy”. Our song was inspired by a Roy Ayers album called Ubiquity/ Everyone Loves Sunshine. Roy is featured on the back of the album with what I think is a blurry lemon flying in front of one of his eye. His album also has a track on it called, guess what, “Lonesome Cowboy”. Our song borrow’s Roy’s title, and makes reference to a couple of his other songs on that album, but the similarity between the two ends there. Ayer’s, for instance, didn’t have the obsession with Lou Diamond Philips that we did.
The next 20 songs are from The Refugees of Funk (Circa School 1998 and Summer 1998). Songs 11, 12, and 13 are the Trilo-G Scantron Beat songs. I believe these might have been the first 3 songs recorded with the Fostex digital 8-track, but I could be wrong about that. We were obviously having fun with the cut and past function on it. These three are a step above the previous ten.
That leaves us with 4 nice tracks to round off the album. I’m guessing only Sonic Sludge is notable (though not very listenable) because Mike’s friend Paul record the guitar “solo.”

For completeness’s sake, the version of John and Allison appearing is not the same version that appeared on the original CD. This track on the CD I have (maybe the only copy left) has a couple skips in it. Fortunately, this song appeared on another CD called Man of the Century – Chook Files #1. Unfortunately, my copy of Man of the Century (again, probably the only copy left) is unplayable. The only place these songs can still be found is the mp3 versions I ripped in 2001. Hopefully they aren’t amongst the mp3s that were trashed from when my mp3 hard drive got physically damaged…
