Album Notes
The latest CD from Fred Chalenor Bass and Henry Franzoni Drums, this time with Neil Mintern on keyboards, their original partner. Fred and Henry keep bumping into each other and hard to define music is the result. Progressive, New, Avant Garde, with a rock beat (although in an odd meter or polyrhythm), each song carefully arranged instrumental music when they are the rhythm section of Face Ditch, pop rock creative music when they are the rhythm section of Caveman Shoestore, freak out jam jazz when they are the rhythm section of the Boodlers.

All sorts of strange music for the weirdos that really like their stuff. There have always been a few weirdos that really liked their stuff, but they are spread thin, across the world. Americans have never warmed up to the Fred and Henry thing as much as the Europeans and Japanese, of course, there have always been exceptions.

Fred and Henry have formed a partnership named Build a Buzz Records, to put out their CDs, and hopefully make some $$$ with them. The five CDs they put out on Tim/Kerr records never made them any money, whereas the one on Cavity Search Records did generate about $800 in profits. Hey, it's the classic music biz story... It's too bad that we live in a morbid society and we have to try to market the hell out of everything, but on the good side, at least, thanks to the modern world, we don't have to club each other over the head any more and drag women back to the cave by the hair... some would say that we have evolved as a species, some would say no we haven't, not much. Looking at the mess in America today, it sure is looking like we're dumber than ever. The world... is in trouble, take a break with some art.

Fred found three of the master tapes from the Tim/Kerr days in a used record store in Portland, being sold as reusable tape. Even though the copyrights reverted to them after Tim/Kerr went bankrupt, they hadn't got the masters back until Fred happened to buy them for $50 each from a stranger. True stories of the music biz...

Face Ditch is working on new material with Randy Neal on guitar as 2005 turns into 2006, so watch for their gigs in the Pacific Northwest.
