about

This album was first released on "Greens", and here it's remastered and included a bonus remix by Cedric Tai.

I had seen a "Female Vocalist Wanted" sign at the record store, and although I was neither of these, called the number on the poster because the list of influences included Beethoven, Danny Elfman and Mr. Bungle. The two of us almost immediately embarked on the collaboration that became "Captain Spacerocket". Although we haven't collaborated much since then, Jesse's grandmother appears in the 2010 "Unreason" film.

Another component of "Spacerocket" comes from Lou Houchin, who sings the part of "Major Klepto". Lou was the primary founding member of the improv comedy troupe I was in from 1998-2000 called Mr. Rogers' Sweatshop. He had developed the concept for a never-realized sci-fi improv show called "Major Klepto in the 24th Century", for which I wrote the theme music heard on this album. So "Spacerocket" is not only an offshoot of the "Unibrows" uni-verse, but also that of Mr. Houchin and Mr. Rogers' Sweatshop.
