HEY! It Was Chris Boulet!

Sept. 24. 2005

As we gear up the the next 45 hour jam in Italy we have been getting a lot of press. In our press releases we have mentioned many names that get edited, names of promoters, backers. musicians, etc.One of these is Chris Boulet whom without there would be no 45 or 33 and 1/3 or 14 or lots of other events in the Veneto region of Italy. His crazy idea to have a 14 hour long jam is what got myself, Schroeder and Tony Levin to want to do 33 1/3 although Tony did not make it until the first 45. Editors tend to be the sorts that search a name, in this case often the All Music Guide and make a judgement call from there. Since Chris Boulet has only had indie releases with limited distribution it is not likely his name would come up on so many lists, much of the greatest talent does not, as these lists tend to be major label promoted. But, that being said most music critics and editors names never come up either on similar lists, unless they write for the NY Times, DownBeat or Rolling Stone. Catch my drift here? It is thier job to cut things to fit in a paper or magazine and they do what they feel is best to make it a good read but not always leading to a better read. So, let me take this moment to tell you all that without the many varied talents of Chris Boulet these events would not have happened or be happening. Thank you Chris.

Prior to 2003 countless gigs were performed in Austin and other parts of the US. It's difficult to trace many of these, some go back to the early '70s but even the ones from the late '90s and on have been difficult to find. Many clubs have closed and there was very little internet use in those days. When we do come across them we will post them.
