Like I explained last week, my band Everything But Anchovies stopped rehearsing and gigging in 1989, but we started getting together for all-improv sessions at Jon's house in 1995. After three of those with just Jon, Tim, and me, we invited Tommy and PeBo to join us for what became weekly jams, a project we called Killer Whirlpool. We taped it every week with two mics into a cassette deck, and captured about 40 sessions between 1996 and 1999.
PeBo is playing guitar, the funky little licks more off to the right; I'm playing the chords. Tommy's playing some great blues harp. Tim and Jon get a really cool groove going. And I made up some pretty good rhymes on the spot. We do some interesting wandering around near the end, then you can hear me jumping up and down at the very end, making the springs of my Twin Reverb's reverb chamber rattle.
This is on the Killer Whirlpool album: high dive, improvised as the tape rolled on September 24, 1996.
Thanks for listening!
