The Family Of Apostolic


John Townley, interviewed by Kurt Benbenek "It was a general set of what my then wife Gilma and my friends and I were playing with at the time, both musically and recordingwise. We were just seeing what a brand-new expensive toy like the first-ever 12-track state-of-the-art studio could do, along with the complete set of all kinds of international instruments I invested in to go along with it.

John Townley, interviewed by Kurt Benbenek "It was a general set of what my then wife Gilma and my friends and I were playing with at the time, both musically and recordingwise. We were just seeing what a brand-new expensive toy like the first-ever 12-track state-of-the-art studio could do, along with the complete set of all kinds of international instruments I invested in to go along with it. I produced the album and am all over it, but you'll notice fiddler Jay Ungar (of later "Achoken Farewell" fame from the PBS Civil War series) and a lot of other incredible talent mixing and matching to see what came out... Bubbling Brook and Water Music were both done in the studio, with sounds mixed in. Another attempt at outdoors done indoors was Mabel's Umbrage, where the distant rauschpfiefe I played was replayed and rerecorded on opposite sides of a closed studio wall to give it that effect. Saigon Girls was a tune written by Garry Bonner and Alan Gordon (who wrote most of the Turtles' hits, like "Happy Together"), earlier part of The Magicians along with Alan Jacobs (Bunky and Jake) and myself.

The "new report" on it was recorded on a two-bit 7/8ips dimestore machine and played back on it with a snare drum for gunfire. The woman crying on that cut later married (for a time) our first engineer Tony Bongiovi, cousin of Bon Jovi. "The most unappreciated cut was probably Taking Me Home, recorded on a primitive Norelco 1 7/8ips machine in our apartment (cover girl and daughter Deirdre is now 41, then three), unless one is into the likes of John Cage and Nam June Paik. What's of interest is not the tune, but the fact that she is clearly intentionally playing with and concentrating on the beat tones and overtone series between her voice and the pump organ she was fingering at the time. Children do that naturally, adults have to be trained to it. The album photos were taken mostly with friends on Block Island, and that littlest short, brown-haired girl is Aida Turturro, now on The Sopranos." http://www.astrococktail.com/familyofapostolic.html Read more on Last.fm.
