"On April 23rd 2003, The GeroGeriGeGeGe hits the road on 8 city west coast tour. They would them make history by partaking in the first ever all scratch music tour. The unique thing about this record is that most of the sounds were designed and arranged before the group actually rehearsed it. In other words, you will hear this record and be challenged with the question on how to use the sounds just as they were. With less than 2 weeks to practice, the member took bits and pieces of sounds from this record, and created the vibe featured on this tour. Like any The GeroGeriGeGeGe releases, this is not your average record, this is an instrument featuring custom made sounds, vintage synths, as well as samples from seminal albums such as "Sketchbook: An Introduction to Good Music". Whether you're trying to mimic the song performed on the tour and album, create original good music, or producing tracks traditionally, there's enough samples to bang out multiple albums. A piece of history on wax."
This liner note from Gero's latest self-titled LP from last year didn't make any sense. Why should it? It's The Gerogerigegege! The liner notes were just copied and edited from a 2004 scratch record for turntablists. The even more hilarious fact is that the music is completely lifted from an old Japanese funk/soul record. I remembered laughing out loud hysterically when I first played the LP. The execution was perfect.
