1. Cool and Unusual Punishment ( D Tek / D Weyer ) (34:26 m:s)
Deniz Tek - guitar
David Weyer - machines and davophone
Recorded at DWS studios, Laurel Montana USA in Oct. 1998
Dave Weyer engineered and produced the session and the mix
Multiple old amplifiers, vintage analogue delay units, Leslie,
& Choratone were used.
The session lasted three hours and was done spontaneously, with no preconceived idea of what would happen. The plan was simply to try to create new and original sounds and to have fun doing so. There was no thought of an album release until a year later, when Dave happened to play the tapes to Nik Rieth and Jim Dickson, who were at the studio for work on Angie Pepper rhythm tracks. The listeners were so taken with the sounds they heard that night that after some discussion, Jim convinced Dave to produce the tapes as a record. Loved by some but hated by others, it is available now from Dave and Deniz by mail order only, with beautiful and strange sleeve art by Michael North.
