Jad Fair and Friends - Live at SXSW 2007 PIAPTK - 220

Back in 2007, I went to go see Jad Fair play at Willie Nelson's SXSW Solar Powered Biostage. I had just released an 8" lathe cut for him but we had never met. I walked up and introduced myself. The first words out of his mouth were, "Do you play drums? Steve Fisk (legendary Seattle producer) and I are about to play, wanna play with us?" and, of course, i said "of course!" But when I got to the stage, there were no drumsticks, no cymbals, no bass drum pedal, and no snare drum. So, I played the whole set with nothing but a floor tom, a woodblock, two ballpoint pens and a Willie Nelson brand bottle of water. Jad played a tiny kids size Epiphone Les Paul, and Steve played synth. It was an avant garde free jazz take on several classics from the Jad/Half Japanese catalog.

And now, for no reason other than I willed it to be, it exists in a physical form and is available on a 10" in a silkscreened sleeve in a Limited Edition of 75 Copies.
