Norman Records gives the following review:
This brisk little cassette captures some of Jason Trachtenburg's finest moments as a silly and touching songwriter. These songs were recorded in 1993 and feature raw banjo playing, sweet gang vocals and that high-pitched coo of Tratchenburg's. 'Let The Fishes Do The Asking' is one for fans of anti-folk that recalls Daniel Johnston and Jeffrey Lewis, as well as those who love quick, in-and-out pop songs a la Guided By Voices.

Personnel as before, except that Rachel is now Rachel Pina Trachtenburg and is credited as Percussion, Drums, Harmonica, Eggs, and Vocals.

Additional Recording by John Marshall Smith / Audio Ware

The big difference between the two releases is that Rachel sings on this version.

The release has a full colour booklet and is enhanced with two QuickTime videos Mountain Trip to Japan, 1959 & Egg’s (note this is a different version to the one that appears on Off and on Broadway DVD)

This version was then licensed in the UK to Tired & Lonesome Recordings cat # TLONECD1.

The only difference is that the front cover has a different pose.

The Topography of Chance
Designed by Curated by Stewart Lee

Released by Sonic Arts Network

Sonic Arts Network is proud to present the eighth instalment of its critically acclaimed CD series, The Topography of Chance, curated by Stewart Lee; stand-up comedian, writer and director. The Topography of Chance is a journey through chance elements that traverses countries and cultures that range from the Golan Heights to Arizona and from Hackney to Rome. After a surreal encounter with a Fluxus Group floating a large portrait painting down a river in Cardiff, eating Borscht out of an oil drum and learning more about late Fluxus artist Emmett Williams (the face in the picture), Stewart bought Williams’ book An Anecdoted Topography of Chance. The book documents in detail, objects left at random on the desk of the artist Daniel Spoerri and it is this premise of chance that acts as inspiration for this CD. The Topography of Chance brings together an eclectic mix of artists, comedians and writers producing work ranging from the beautiful to the bizarre.

1. Magnetic Migration Music - A Loch, Central Scotland, (Side A, Side B Blank)

Theme Song: September 2011

“Superrookie” by Supercute!

Every month we’re gonna feature a Rookie theme song by a different band that we love. For our first one, we couldn’t have done better than Supercute! Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Supercute! is Rachel Trachtenburg, age 17, on vocals and ukelele; Julia Cumming, 15, on ukelele, guitar and vocals; and Olivia Ferrer, 12, on keyboards and vocals. For more about them, please visit their Facebook or their MySpace. We are refraining ourselves from making so many puns with “super” and “cute” right now.

We are proud to present, as our inaugural theme song, “Superrookie,” by Supercute! (!!)

Download the song here.
