Album Notes
Recorded on a borrowed 8 track reel to reel, "The Soo Line Recordings" exemplifies the influential style of Eau Claire Wisconsin's Tatters during the winter of 1984-'85. These nine songs represent the catchy, yet thoughtful songwriting of Jeffrey T. Johnson (1963-2012), as well as Patrick Farnand's (1961-2007) creative drumming ability during the early days of Tatters (later known as Another Carnival). Other members of Tatters include bassist Dave Gleboff and Shane McMahon guitar.
Originally intended as a demo, these recordings were soon overshadowed by a full length professional studio recording, and therefore never released until now, 28 years later.
Proceeds from the sale of these recordings will go directly Jeff Johnson's cousin Scott, to offset his expenses during his battle against cancer.
