about

Joseph C. Krause writes:

I've known Paul Szewczyk, the composer of most of our tunes, since third grade. Growing up, I was always into "making tapes", usually awful sketch comedy, and Paul was mostly into Beethoven. After several years of recording tapes of fake radio shows in which he would play classical music and I would play Weird Al, something acted as a multiplier and we recorded "I Like Food" (the original record of which is a bonus track at the end of this album). I think even we were surprised at how bizarre our first song was, and so we soon gave up our previous techniques and started making more bizarre music.

By the end of high school, Paul was distributing a cassette called "Neves-eatnouT", an "opera" which evolved over three years to become the album available here. This album is the foundation for everything we've done since -- we continue to weave in concepts relating to it in our new works. There are also aspects to it that we could never recreate because being 16 years old is different from being 30. Although our freshman noodling is evident, there's still a strong influence from more formalized 20th-century classical techniques. And there's a track called "Poop".
