Joe Folk & the Soho Valley Boys - "Chyeah"
The 2nd Joe Folk and the Soho Valley Boys
cassette only album completed 9/30/98
involves a posse of over 40 Roger-pals having
a good time moving through big and little
beats, spokey word, strange covers of Roger-
songs, backwards electric guitars
and mandolin, occasional banjo, cello,and piles
of sound effects and soundbites.
There's plenty of sex, very little violence, and
even some politics. Aprox. 63 minutes.

- The "original" talking blues. 1st folk song I ever learned. Chosen
because you didn't have to be able to sing. A sort of hip hop approach
here with a Woody Guthrie verse thrown in on the end. Sharon in Phoenix
introduces it. Heather chokes on oatmeal in Brooklyn. Sprague steps
on some glass. "Banjovi" on
banjo and additional word.

LA. She went into this character. ...Kristen's
harmonica meanders over backwards mandolin (like Hendrix backwards electric
guitar). John S Hall reads about late adolescent sex out in small town
hot afternoon thunderstorm.

reminiscing spooky night at N.Ireland seacoast and past

cops on our block. "Maybe they're making a movie (?)
