1. Product Details

Originally released on cassette in 1993 and now for the first time on vinyl this is an incredible document from a teenage Arrington de Dionyso. All the seeds of his 30+ career are engrained on these fully formed Tascam recordings. Bobcatflamethroat was originally released as Pine Cone Alley Cassette 9 in August of 1993. The songs were recorded on a Tascam Porta-One 4 Track cassette studio inside a secret area in the basement of the College Activities Building at the Evergreen State College known as Happyland. This album has never before seen a digital release of any kind however there is one song Everything is Broken which later became part of the original canon of Old Time Relijun after that band was formed in 1995. That song was re-recorded on the first Old Time Relijun album Songbook Vol. I released in 1997. I still dig most of the tunes on this one- these were all written and recorded while preparing to welcome a new young life into the world my daughter Lucinda born August 22 1993. So while not specifically Childrens Music per se the tunes are wild hopeful optimistic yawps of playful abandon for all ages. There are a number of inside jokes that only would have made sense to the very tight knit inner circle hat I considered my core group of friends at that point in my life. I also think there are more than a few hits on here. I was 18 years old Anyone who has followed the last thirty years of my musical career should find something of interest and delight on this album. For some reason I chose to record most of the guitar and bass parts direct without an amplifier- Im not sure why I did that but its a unique sound in retrospect. Theres a decent dose of throatsinging and other odd vocal techniques proving that I dove deep into this territory of vocal exploration at a very young age. Also plenty of mouth harps flutes kazoos and clarinet although this was just BEFORE I bought my first bass clarinet. The song Kite Dragon Hypnosis showcases the very first time I EVER recorded anything with a saxophone The lyrics are reflective of my interests in the theories of Ethnopoetics as put forth by Jerome Rothenberg in many of his books such as Shaking the Pumpkin and Technicians of the Sacred as pathways to understanding the universality of myth and shamanism as connective threads through human poetic expression. And yes if you know something about the Evergreen State College I did indeed receive 16 credits for working on this album.
