Album Notes
at{AT}, prep. [AS.aet], 1. on; in; near; by: As at the ...

Released in CD format only in 1992 is sort of an unusual release.

Created from the Conveniens studio recording remnants and materials for a possible 1989 Conveniens release that didn't happen, AT takes eclectic to an extreme sounding like a compilation.

Yes you have John Maz-drums, David Sterling Smith-keyboards again, but pulling the band in different directions is Tom Jonusaitis, brains of the Bonemen Of Barumba {the notorious Chicago post-punk band}.

Tom appears on three tracks: Zinozydeco-accordion, Amityvilelvis-guitar, Urbanpolygyny-keyboard. An intresting note: John Maz is the drummer on a Bonemen Of Barumba EP, track; Toombah For Ronnie.

Also appearing on AT is Ted Blood Buchanan: Egartibra-saxophone. Teddy is known for his appearances on Chicago's WGN Bozo's Circus with The Buchanan Brothers Trio {the height of his childhood career}.

Both Tom and Ted can be heard in tighter format on the Conveniens Clear LP.


SURAB-Conventional straight ahead dance beat {bar us spelled backward}.

TONSURE-Ethereal landscaping (a special haircut}.

ZINOZYDECO-Cajun space cowboy.

AMITYVILELVIS-Dedication to Elvis {his excessive promiscuity}.

DIYDDIYD-Somewhat rhythmic new age.

URBANPOLYGYNY-Urban culture at rush hour {traffic jam}.

NELLIMONK-Nonrhythmic textural drums and piano.

EGARTIBRA-Improvisational sax piano drums {arbitrage spelled backwards}.

INTERVIEW-Speaks for itself.

Outside of David Sterling Smith's entrance into new age{Diyddiyd, Tonsure} there are three redeeming cuts to Conveniens AT:

Urbanpolygyny, Jonusaitis brings in the dissonant hardcore sound while Maz takes an Alvin Jone's Trane approach.

Nellimonk, a texturalized conception of improvisation, piano and drums. Possibly the best artistic work Smith and Maz have ever done.

Interview, in a radio station recording interview which wasn't working out, Smith and Maz took over. Manipulating the tape recording turning it into a work of musique concre'te, then giving the interviewing DJ {Dave Anton} an author credit!

These are original 1992 CDs of AT which were found in storage in limited quantity in Convenience vaults. Intresting note; a number of these CDs were originally distributed in sealed blister packs.
