about

The result of months of postal back-n-forth between two proud public school teachers, "Title One" is all tape-smeared guitars and/or guitar-soaked cassette tapes, folded into a two-part organic, grain-fed, free-range and locally sourced slab of visceral/emotive musical edutainment. A howl of life-affirming joy from two guys who talk to children all day and envision a brighter future once the current crop of rich bastards age out of the corrupt system and the kids take over.

No one knows why. ... more
