"This is a SERIOUS RECORDING of Cheep Effects"!
In MY sonorous voice!
And it was recorded on MY Pioneer CTf-1000 CASSETTE machine!

Sorry Calliope Kurtz! You were a major talent in OUR Cheep Effects, but YOU turned on me for some reason!
Because you're a complete lunatic? Do ya think that might have had
something to do with it?

I wanted to work WITH you to publish it and make a little $$ off it too!
My guess is Calliope Kurtz didn't want a millstone around his neck.
Why would he want to collaborate with you?

I met Craig Kurtz near the end of 7th grade. I was at my school, and it
was either after school, or on a weekend. I had my Fender Bronco and
a book with a thousand guitar chords. Craig was two years older. We
wrote a song that day. He had wandered by and saw me with the guitar,
and I composed the guitar part to his lyrics. We ended up playing in a
band for a couple of years.
Soon after we met, we discovered that we both were into Mott the
Hoople, a band most folks hadn't even heard of. That dumbass went
and signed up for the US Navy, but before he left for basic, he had met
this girl, and he told me to keep an eye on her. That's like asking the
cat to keep an eye on the canary.
Like John, Craig was kind of a failure as a man, so he briefly tried being
a woman. I was *very* surprised when he turned up here. The only thing
I can think of is that he Googled his own name and got a hit that was a
post here. I didn't have contact info, and I know that he dislikes me more
than he dislikes John. He had called me back in (I think) 2007, and when
I answered he asked, "Do you know who this is?" Even though I had no
contact with him for about 25 years, his voice was very characteristic,
and I said, Craig Kurtz. I think he wanted to shock me with his whole trans
thing, and I think that I disappointed him by not being phased. When I
tried to contact him a few years later, he ignored me, which is fine. All I
wanted to do was send him a copy of The Bonobos' CD, as we'd played in
a band together when we were teenagers.
