For whoever might be interested, this is my 2021 tape. Not making physical copies though. Available only as a digital download. Thanks for your support.
When I started making up songs in the late 90s I would usually make a tape full of songs at least once a year, and then I'd try to sell copies of the tapes at open mic nights and any place I could play. After a few of these annual cassette-albums I started having the opportunity to release stuff on CD, and the opportunity to release stuff through record labels, but I never stopped making up songs and recording them any way possible. It was all from following the example of how Daniel Johnston had done it. All my 20+ years of recording songs I owe to Daniel! RIP!

All songs by Jeffrey Lewis, but #18 is from the Burning Hell and #14 was written for Peter Stampfel because he wanted new words to the old Watts-Ryerson song from the early 40s. And #4 "Vaccinated" is based on the Joey Ramone "Sedated" song that was based on the Alice Cooper "Elected" song that was based on the Dennis Dunaway(?) "Reflected" song. Mostly home recordings played into a voice-memo thing. Nellie Bridge is doing the additional vocal on #3, Sleepy Kitty (Paige and Evan) played/recorded the backing band stuff on #4 (and the drums on #8), and Damian Quinones is the one playing the lead guitar on #16. Damian also helped engineer some of #8 at his apartment.
Mastered by Brian Speaker.
(Brian Speaker also mixed #4 and #8)
