This Is The Place




The Clip Clop of Doom

Ballon Chase Team was the last of my bands to appear on Harriet Records. While we never performed under that name we managed to get a few recordings out.  "The Other Shoe" and "Clip Clop of Doom" were released on the 1998 Harriet compilation "The Friendly Society" I don't know why both songs are about shoes.



Harriet Records

I was in a lot of bands that appeared on Harriet Records. A label that Tim Alborn ran from 1989-1998 while laboring as an assistant professor at Harvard. Now Tim has uploaded a playlist that features much of the Harriet Catalog. He has included this track which was never released but I gave to Tim on a cassette at a going away party for him when he was leaving Cambridge. Notable mostly for being the first recording under the name Uranium Daughters.

Baby Blue

41 years ago today.

I have in the past posted this cover version for Pete Ham's birthday but this year I am doing it for his death day which is just 3 days before his birthday. In the wake of all the big music star deaths of this still young year I remember this as the first crushing one for me. Followed 5 years later by John Lennon.


My Tree

I got a video camera for my birthday.

My Tree

This is a solo version of My Tree which appeared in the band version on Tomorrow Will Be As Happy As Music.
