Gabcast! ewe #0 - Beverage
'Beverage' is another of the collaborations that were so much of a hallmark of 'Mouth Congress'. We rarely rehearsed and almost never performed and generally never even wrote anything down so it was very difficult to reproduce the right sound onstage. We made up for it by wearing lots of costumes which naturally we would remove until at the end of every show pretty much everyone on stage would be nude and I would be mounting either the drums, the drummer or the speakers. This technique allowed us to remain fresh or years. Some might even say that if 'Mouth Congress' were to return that they would be fresher than ever. I may be biased but I can't disagree. Cue 'groundswell of popular opinion demanding a comeback'. LIke Testicle Delight, it comes from the same album, " The War on Flowers', available soon from 'Super Greatest Lady Records'. As you listen , close your eyes and try to imagine what it was like that hot Summer of Like when beverage choice was so limited, a world before Snapple, Fruitopia, Infused Green Teas, Pomtini's and even the juice which changed the rules of the beverage world, 'Tropicana'.
