Product Notes

Country Joe McDonald wrote, '.... reminds me of a combination of early B52's and Ken Nordine/Word Jazz.' Thom Jurek from All Music Guide says in the liner notes 'Sharp enough to cut glass around a cynic's heart.' Definitions always come after innovation in the Darwinesque chronology of creative expression. Let the desperate describing begin. Sw'elegant: 1) a term for those too old to be cool, 2) sexuality transformed into a sassy spiritual quality, 3) cheeky grace, 4) a contraction from the Cole Porter tune, Well, did you evah? which combines the words 'swell' and 'elegant.' This release is truly a large canvas that requires alot from the listener. It has no value as background or quick study. Spend time with each track, see them as songs, then short stories, then paintings. The book contains lyrics, band bios, and photos. Also included is an essay by Thom Jurek entitled, 'What the Silence Has Conceded' and the short story 'The Blahonie Brothers get a Hagfish' by Michael Salinger. Musicians : Kim Webb - vocals, guitar; Renee Tambeau - vocals; John Demko - vocals, guitar, Euphonium; Richard Perry - percussion; Stuart Tucker - drums.
