M/D - "Accordion / Static / Lost / Space Jam" - Tape - 2000
I don't really know the story behind this tape, but I have some strong assumptions about who is involved in playing the instruments. I'll keep those thoughts to myself. Basically, this is just a long improv jam session recorded on a tape player without too much thought put into it. It seems like maybe the players decided to throw this tape away, but put it in their free box instead.
Long story short: If you ever want to get rid of a tape for good, cut the tape up into shreds. Don't put it in the free box at your collective warehouse on a dead end street in New Orleans. That crusty traveling kid who just hopped a train into town and is now sleeping on your floor might just pull it out of the box and decide to share it on a music blog 14 years later.
