"I can almost remember the day that REP sent me the first issue of this LP. Taking it out of the package I glommed the title, looked at who was participating and snorted appreciatively. EGO SUMMIT-perfect! DON HOWLAND, JIM SHEPARD, RON HOUSE, TOMMY JAY and MICHAEL were all guys whose impact on the world of music (as it is known) was questionable, but all of them were well-known at the sub-underground level, and it was damn certain they all felt like kings! Between them they had created sounds and records that were legendary and influential, but the fact that they were all bums dedicated to living in Columbus, Ohio made the reality of their impact something that was hard to appreciate if you lived further away than Dayton (home of GBV). But as the years peeled away, oddball record collectors (and perhaps, even, the women who love them) have come to appreciate the insane form-moves this cabal of record collectors was up to. By the time of this release, theyd been putting out records for years, with bands as diverse as GIBSON BROS., BASSHOLES, VERTICAL SLIT, V-3, GREAT PLAINS, MIKE REP & THE QUOTA, TRUE BELIEVERS (OH), and in various solo incarnations of one form or another. Each had evolved a dinstinctive sound, redolent of every goddamn record hed ever heard-from Ramblin Thomas to the Twinkeyz to Armand Schaubroeck Steals to Destroy All Monsters, and they were ready to roll it all out. Ego Summit functions like a download of everything theyve ever really loved, from the VUs Live 69 to Quicksilvers cover of Buffy Ste. Maries Codine, all piled up in a beautifully loose garage band jumble. Im never sure whether my fave track is Ron Houses Rise Sherry (with its lazy approximation of the original Contortions slide guitar/bass dualism), Jim Shepards abosultely blown talling-blues, We Got It All (the best experiment in the form since the Minutemens History Lesson Part Two), or Don Howlands Wife Blues (a track that makes every motion by Spencers Blues Explosion extraneous), but the whole goddamn thing is great. A totally superior listen, by a bunch of clowns who were their own best fans. And knew why. Now you do too."- Byron Coley.

Title: The Room Isnt Big Enough
Format: CDR
Label: Old 3C
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"..The Room Isnt Big Enough is the creation of five veteran Columbus, Ohio scenesters gathering together for a handful of nights at Tommy Jays Barn/Studio in Harrisburg, Ohio. Most of the songs were written "especially for" this project. Don Howland (Gibson Bros, Bassholes), Jim Shepard (Vertical Slit, V3), Ron House (Great Plains, Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments), Tommy Jay (Mike Rep and The Quotas, (Ohio)True Believers) and Mike Hummel (Mike Rep and The Quotas, "basement producer" extraordinaire) have been friends and supporters of each others music since the late seventies. It was generally agreed that some documentation to that fellowship should be recorded before the participants doddered off into "Old Age". This album _is_ that testimony. Although a good time was had, this album is not "good timey". These thirteen songs reflect the blues, folk, and punk roots heritage of all involved. Each song was sung by its lyricist, with the exception of "Half Off", which was sung by Don Howland / written by Ron House." - Old Age/No Age. "limited edition run of 250 fully-packaged and shrink-wrapped CDRs, complete with a deluxe fold-out color insert including multiple photos of the boys, and Mikes "Trails to Ego Summit" artwork. Not to mention that weve added a bonus Ego Summit track to the original 13 songs, Mikes "Fuck the Clock," which some of you may know from the Jim Shepard tribute." - Old 3C. Very highly recommended!
