Tommy Jay - Tall Tales of Trauma


The Long awaited re-issue of the nineteen eighty six Old Age/No Age cassette, Tom's Tall Tales of Trauma. Songs from ten years (out of thirty) of DIY barn and basement classics from Tommy Jay, member/songwriter and co producer of Ego Summit, Mike Rep & the Quotas, and the (Ohio) True Believers.

Tom's Tall Tales is musical dark matter, an unseen cosmic force connecting Ohio punk/folk 4-track 70's experiments to the Cowtown lo-fi explosion of the early 90's and on to today's New Generation of Ohio DIY 4-trackin' freaks.

"He's been my secret weapon all these years-Tommy Jay is he Pavarotti of Punk and so much more."
-Mike "Rep" Hummel

Have to admit when you mentioned this a couple of posts ago I couldn't wait and found it over at http://incompletetalesofseveraljourneys.blogspot.com/2008/09/tommy-jay-tommy-jays-tall-tales-of.html
Been listening for the past couple of days, it's friggin' genius is what it is. Thankyou for the tip. The Galbraith is superb also, reminiscent of a slightly more, if darker, structured Pumice.
