BCO Addendums : GRASS 7" / Child's Garden 7"
After I had uploaded the pictures for the BCO chapter below this entry, I thought of a couple of additions.
First, I needed to show something about the last record I did with BCO- GRASS b/w GRASS, otherwise known as the Grass Single. It's pretty well explained in the review below, from (CMJ!) April 1996. Underneath that, peeking through, is the info-card that came with the single, which was packaged with a 7" square of Astroturf, and no visible graphics outside. Just a seven-inch piece of lawn on a record store shelf. Great idea, although I was never thrilled with the record; actually none of us were, but we tried hard to make it good. One factor against it was probably the deterioration of das and I's relationship at that point, which had been eroding by degrees all year (to go by my diary). If you know the original songs, though, it's worth checking this out to see what we did with the covers.
Below: Up until now I never bothered to make a nice cover for the CD edition of Child's Garden, our kid's record, and so today I whipped one up. I'm so happy with the result that I'm going to add it to this BCO Chapter Prequel.
Below: While assembling materials to make the cover above, I came across this promo flier in a copy of the second edition of Child's Garden. There are some nice comments. Drone Records, Germany, 1996.
