The Don Campau Project, Vol. 2
Born in 1952, Campau began recording in 1969 with the legendary Bay Area avant garde group, The Roots Of Madness. The Roots recorded an LP in 1971 and many open reel tapes as albums now being re-issued on CDR. In 1976, he started 4 track recording with his friend, Greg Gray and later went on to form The Desmonds, a punk band, with Greg and Joe Menichetti. In 1981, he got his own 4 track and has been cranking out the home recordings ever since. Campau also hosts the long running home taper and independent radio program, NO PIGEONHOLES, on KKUP, 91.5FM throughout the SF and Monterey Bay Areas.

The front piece is a guitar work I came up with last night using some alternate tuning. I wanted to do something with the piece so what better than a new tapegerm track. I also liked "see it all" the last song icecreamofdeath did so I wanted to incorporate that into this piece as well - the monstrous ending was a perfect slot. Hal's loops perfectectly accent the intro part. Credits: icecream of death, 24 hour flu, MJB guest artist, Don Campau guest artist, S.L.I.P. guest artist, Majestic Twelve guest artist, Hal McGee Open Loops. Genre: Big Badd & Ugly.

Awesome loops from Don! Didn't know how to catagorize this one. Any suggestions are welcome. Credits: Don Campau Guest Artist mix and Cystem. Genre: Instrumental.
Don Campau I didn't know. Wallace Stevens I didn't know. Now I do, and I'm happier for the experience.
I'd always wanted to attempt a multiple harmony 'thing' and this seemed the perfect place to try it. All in all I'm happy, though this is top of my list of tracks to tweak when I get a moment. The spoken word pieces were the muse food for this mix. My 6th track. Credits: Kamakura, Don Campau Guest Artist, Wallace Stevens, with Vocals, vox. Genre: Alternative.
