John Herron and Eric Hausmann have never met. They traded albums with each other through the mail after reading each others reviews in various zines. They eventually discussed the idea of putting out an album together. Within a few weeks, John sent Eric a cassette with an hour's worth of drums and percussion tracks. Eric immediately went to work, adding guitar tracks. This album is a deliberate attempt for both artists sound to stand side by side. Recorded in 1994.
"I was very excited to get this release. The teaming of Hausmann's guitar with Herron's percussion work could really be a dream come true and "Fish Music" delivers the promise at several points along the way. Herron's percussion work is tight and complex, leagues above what you'll hear coming out of 99% of home-based studios. Real pro work and loaded with feeling. And you just never know what to expect from Hausmann's guitar. Sometimes it moans like a vibration, sometimes it stumbles like a fish. And, damnit, it's gonna take me at least a hundred more listens before I can tell you any more about this one. Get it and you'll know what I mean." -- Bryan Baker
