Ragtime Ralph recently sent me a recording of one of his other musical efforts. Quonset was a bass/scrap metal percussion duo based on Savage Republic.
Here's what Ralph said about this recording.
Quonset is my personal favorite of anything I've done: acoustic or electric...it's me on 3 string drone bass and Ed Frey on drums and scrap metal percussion...similar to very early Savage Republic...in fact we do a Savage Republic cover (Exodus)...performing rights graciously worked out with Savage Republics lawyer before release...and all it cost me were 6 copies of the CD! I'm planning on re-releasing this CD (with extra cuts) on Empty Square at some point in the future.So this obviously is not the kind of stuff I normally post but since Ralph's music has been prominent in this blog I think it is relevant to present his other work. I think it is one of those things that remind me that all of us are very multi-faceted individuals and it is easy to form perceptions about artists when you know them for only one aspect of their artistry.
I know there is a strong connection between the American Primitive audience and the experimental genres. So many of you may find this interesting. I hope so.
Thanks again Ralph!
