“Hippo Lite” DRAG CITY

Exclaim! - - TABLE OF CONTENTS -

Out Now. DRINKS are CATE LE BON and TIM PRES­LEY, with JOHN “JT” THOMAS on drums. Sez Pres­ley: “In a town, so very still and quiet. A month in St. Hip­polyte Du Fort, South France. We set up a record­ing unit in an old stone mill turned house and be­gan to write and record with the at­ten­tion of tree trim­mers or gar­den­ers. It got so hot we had to swim in a lo­cal river near by just to be able to think, then back to our home to make sounds and songs. Any sounds we could think of or wanted. We used night sounds, night in­sects and used frogs as in­stru­ments. Did you know frogs have sax­o­phones in their throats? This is a bro­ken mu­sic. a crum­ble. It’s the mu­sic of the build­ing we called home for a month.”
