peter and i had met at a certain music school in boston
in 1987 and it took twelve years to finally find the time
to collaborate. i'd been busy playing in bands which eventually
led to jackdrag and peter was doing pretty much the same
in a parallel universe. more recently though, he's been
composing for television. he's the one who did the brilliant
music for that volkswagen spot where the yuppie's are driving
through new orleans in the rain and the music is perfectly
in sync with all movement including the windshield wipers.
in any case, peter would often come up with a loop and i'd
compose over it, or it would simply be the other way around.
i would usually do all my parts at space67 on my DA38 and
then bring the tape over to his house (76 place) where we
would dump it on to pro-tools. he would then do his thing.
the two "bonus" tracks were recorded on cassette 4-track.
though encouraged to, we never did put together a live show.
i'm sure we'll collaborate again but whether it will be
under the jr.commy moniker remains to be seen.
