Description: This is the 2014 David Thomas revision of the original 1986 two track digital recordings. Nearly six hours worth of tape were reviewed to come up with the definitive version.

This album was recorded live in the studio to two-track digital tape at Suma on November 18, 20 and 21, 1985. No overdubs or drop-ins. If something went wrong then we started again. Fostex X-15 and Tascam 144 multitrack cassette recordings were used as real time accompaniments for Coffee Train, My Town, Monster Magee and Monster Thinks About The Good Days.

What Happened To Me, My Town and Monster Magee, King of the Seas were written by Thomas. Bicycle and Monster Thinks About The Good Days were written by Thomas - Maimone. Coffee Train was written by Thomas - Maimone - Ravenstine. Monster Walks The Winter Lake was written by Thomas - Hild - Yellin. My Theory of Spontaneous Simultude / Red Tin Bus was written by Hild - Maimone - Ravenstine - Thomas - Yellin. All songs are ©1986 Hearpen Music.
