Dirk (,) Rodney - La Noque Que Durissima

Label : Frog Peak Music
Year : 2001
Country : US
Format : CDr

I've had this for awhile and I either A. forgot to post it or B. thought it didn't fit the mold of the blog. Well, here it is. The mysterious (pre) minimalist Liverpuldian composer put to disc for the first time. 
Purported image of the legendary sound arranger.

It would cool if this were truly the case. However, noted Rodney fan Larry Polansky is the real brains and brawn of this little charade. Don't find out the truth about your heroes, kids. Of course, fake composers are not totally foreign to this blog, see Frank Weghardt (which I need to reupload, great little EP). The amount of effort put into this little song and dance is pretty admirable. Someone (Larry, I presume) went through the trouble of creating whole compositions and even a website in his "honor". There's also a webzine article dedicated to this, if that isn't making it, I don't know what is.
Brought to me and then to you, the listener, by the good people at Frog Peak. They also released "Happily Ever After" by Randy Hostetler, an album near and dear to my hearts and minds, and distributed the Dennis Báthory-Kitsz cassettes I need to reup. Anyway, here it is.
