A History Lesson
“Once upon a time…… There were two strange young boys who liked to improvise music together (stylish Pete Escobar and rowdy Frank Bukowski). They wrote songs about pooping on Lexan plates and the mystical world that lived in their bloodshot eyes, and behold Jah smiled and he saw that good things were to come (Jah has a wicked since of humor). The boys made music using the power of Frank’s acoustic guitar and a pair of headphones for a microphone. One trip to Radio Shack for a $12 microphone and a tape deck with two 1/4 inch input jacks and they were able to conjure the brownness.
Each session Pete would try to make Frank laugh until he sharted, and each session Frank would spill the illest jams for Pete to freestyle on. Pete and Frank, being A.D.D. riddled stoners, were unable to duplicate but a select few songs that they had created – each 90-minute tape a sole witness to the chaos and beauty of two warped souls communing through the voice of music and brown lyrical prose.
One night whilst trolling for gothic chicks, Pete and Frank met a wizard (the legendary Face McQueen), and he told them he could show them the secrets of production value and percussion, and yea Jah did proclaim it was more gooder then before (it’s Jah after all and he is the most high), and that it was just as strange, but was easier to understand. And so it goes – the years flew by, equipment and monthly salaries at their day jobs got better, hundreds of 90 and 120-min tapes were filled, and now gigs of hard drive space will be filled for future sickos and folk junkies.”
– From the Mouth of Pete Escobar
Pete and Frank have enjoyed jamming with many distinguished personages over the years, including Pete’s soul-brother Jarvis MacKorkle, Frank’s brown-baggin’ buddy Longjohn O’Hara, Johnny France and Johnny Leach – much love and good times. Many albums have been prepared to share this special brown magic that is Pete and Frank. Welcome to their world.
