Blues for Bozo

May 15, 2009 12:04 PM

October 1996. My wife was gone to visit her folks in France. I was sitting at home with a Boss DR-5, a Fostex four track cassette machine and a twelve pack of Red Dog.

I also had this twenty dollar accordion that my wife found at the local thrift store. I had to do some work on it, as several of its tiny springs had come unsprung at some point. It sounded a bit sour, this squeeze box, but what the hell - I couldn't really play the thing anyway.

You sure it wasn't a thirty rack?

Just kidding... I like the breathing precussion, whatever that is making the sound that goes "hsss-ssa." in there. And you rock on the accordion -- you've got at least two of those notes down pat!

Thanks for the comment. Yep, I'm still working on getting that third note on the accordion down. One day, maybe.
