sez jbc-shirt-list coup leader Chris Camfield:

well, the samples on LoveBus (racecars, passing 'planes, etc) are in
the same spirit of how samples have always been used, i think.
the JBC use samples very much like how they use lyrics, as
a piece of the narrative. since a sample always(?) deal somewhat
with the topic/story at hand, it is just another way of saying:
"see, this is what it was like". pat once said that the reason
he used samples (during the Big Planet era) is that he can tell people:
"see this is *exactly* what it was like, i dont have to describe it for you".
so is it a change? it isnt as if they were a pop group that suddenly
discovered samplers and indiscriminately started dropping funny sounds
into a song simply because it was hip that year. it seems to me that
in the context of LoveBus (laid-back, mostly) it fits. Big Planet
had more, but then, Big Planet was released in a more obnoxious time.
can anyone tell me why all the delphi.com and aol.com accounts
are bouncing all their email?
does anyone have a CD player handy? how about transcribing some lyrics?
done so far: filth, penguins, ghosts, president chang,

chris - keep up the good work with the shirts.
