Not Really What I'm Looking For

Product Of A Confused Mind is a jam-packed 90 minute cassette, stuffed with all manner of boooolsh!t!, good and bad. Most of it makes me cringe but it was fun to make & really kind of sums up my personality at the time. I guess. Writing & recording were my primary obsessions. Editing or, y'know, engineering recordings were not.

Ian C Stewart "Not Really What I'm Looking For" MP3

Let's see... there's the Synsonics toy drum machine keeping time. Slapped bass, of course. Casio SK-5 sampling keyboard for that melody thing & probably the percussive scream. Lyrics.... uh, I was a senior in high school, so. Who knows. I think they ggo something like

nudge don't budge don't push me aside
lost my keys can you give me a ride
I didn't have a car any way
I just drove my keys around all day

Here's another family photo, circa March 1992.

Warlock, Jaguar.... Macho Man. This is before Macho met his demise at the comic store, obviously.

That cover is sweet. Was that one of your custom painted covers? It looks like it is a water color.

Nope, random clippage from National Geographic.

Or possibly the National Geographic kids' magazine, whatever that was called.

fzzy recollections

FZZY PMPR came about after I bought a used desktop PC that was curated by ECC's Mark Gunderson. 
 He loaded it up with the entire internet circa 1996 with every game, oddity and software package ever, along with some ECC ephemera. I eventually started experimenting with audio editing programs like Cool Edit and the like, trying to do "cut ups" of my own, which were just failed sound experiments really. Eventually I crafted an album of sample-based material, which was the Samarkand album "Continua". Eventually the megalomania took focus and a la Evolution Control Committee, Samarkand became FZZY PMPR which had as its members, what, DJ Arse and others, I think?

Megalomania gave way to regular mania and today it's not even a memory! That's the way Huntington's Disease works, I start off with this bossy, overpowering and seductive uhh drive to just point out every single thing in the universe which gradually cools until it's like it never even happene…
