"All right...this is going to take a while to explain... Hang in there with a mug: While still in union at the cove, me and the Conn Artist would always hit up the local Office Max (re: Copymax) and scam copies, grip supplies - usual underground lurker shit. So after months of doing this, a Max worker finally talks to us and is into noize= dudes is Jason, sayz all his coworkers are freaked out of me and Connelly cause we copy weird shit, wore shorts and look like Heroin addicts (????)... So we hit it off with Jason, hang with his crew and let the good times roll... Enter PE PAUL, AKA Mr. Nutzo AKA New Pledgmaster AKA dude most likely to get naked at a crew gig with no ladies present. You might also know him as the wacko who was kicked outta the last No Fun during the Smegma set for being shirtless, on acid, and crazy. When Paul was getting escorted out, Weise turns to Dilloway and says, "Man...what a loose nut... causing a ruckus... you know him?" "Yeah I do, Hes Paul from Boston. Me and Olson have a band with him called Warning Sign." So fast forward a month or so, middle of summer/ Ann Arbor= crazy. PE PAUL sublets a huge crib christens it the GSPOT. Turns out to the be the summer spot for all gigs underground and nutz. A gig twice a week, ruling times, massive final show literally hours before Paul has to vacate. Rumors spread of destroying the spot and burning it down... comes pretty close. Turns out when the renters come back to reclaim the house Paul is passed out on mounds of broken glass and bottles on a some Iggy trip shit and the parents threaten his life... ruff scene. Warning Sign -- which never end up being with Dilloway -- becomes a house band at the GSpot....duo with reeds, drums, and ?????? Every gig was pretty strange, you never knew what PE PAUL was gunna do. The mug apparently studied music in Boston but no one has seen proof of it. So aanyhow... black to Copymax Jason... his birthday is coming up and his lady at the time Alicia (re: Alicia Warning) wants to have a birthday show at they house before their lease runs out. The only band that signs up is Warning Sign. No Wolves come cause we are leaving the next morning for Barcelona, no crew members show up. Weird gig/scene. Only lurkers and some weird dudes on BMX bikes that "kinda know Dilloway AKA that weird dude at Disks & Tapes" are around. Turns out there is no place to jam... except a basement that hasnt been opened "in forever." Me and Paul crack the door, peer inside, nothing but low ceilings, cobwebs, dampness, and a mound of something that died a slow horrible death months ago. Totally gross. So we set up and its the middle of summer and like 110 Degrees in the basement. Fully Nasty. Turns out Alicia is a flute goddess and wants to jam along/sweet... so we start playing... and within minutes every Nutzo in the basement is playing a horn, jammin, freaking out, yelling... weird shit/brain jolting/numbing gig. Woke up the next morning and sent the tape to the plant. Pressed here on wax for eternity is the results of the gig. Super strange ultra crude echo chamber basement jazz cubism. Edition of 113 on black wax with paste on covers. Copymax Jason Postscript: After moving out, Jason and Alicia broke up, all them + "Copymax Chris" (re: Brian, who never worked at Officemax or Copymax) who also played on the above WS record, and nearly everyone on the record moved into the short lived "Pleasuredome" in Ypsi that did two gigs, one with Corsano, Traum, Laundry Room Squelchers/both busted hard by Copz and shut down permanately...." -American Tapes
