was 1991… my mother told me that there was a guy living in her apartment
building who she’d heard playing music. I knocked on his door, he
answered it, and thus began a musical odyssey. Joe, as I found out his
name was years later, eventually bought a sequencer that ran on floppy
disks, and we proceeded to spend hours going back and forth, recording
musical parts on top of each other’s work that eventually, for lack
of a better word, we had to call “songs”. The band name seemed
obvious: Conceptual Intercourse. Building music by throwing ideas back
Frustrated by the flimsy contracts major labels offered us, we decided
to create our own record label: Bogus Music (online at www.BogusMusic.com)
It was an instant hit with up to three of our friends. Since then we’ve
continued our roller coaster ride into obscurity at breakneck speed, with
over 20 copies of our albums in print and more than 10 visitors to the
website each year.
Our first, self-titled, album Conceptual Intercourse was a little rough
around the edges. Then came Trees & Boats, and 2*W*A*Y*T*V. Along
the way we learned to actually play our instruments, sing, how to use
the computer to record, and Joe built a studio in his basement. You should
see it! Wow!
The last piece of the Bogus Music puzzle came a year ago in the form of
Brad Ayers, who knows how to Master (a mysterious technique for making
our music sound “good”). We’re sure glad he’s
joined the team.
And so, after 3 albums and 17 years, its finally here: Our Fourth Album.
