Recorded in 1934, this rare collection of unheard blues classics is sure to please. Digitally remastered from an old vinyl record found in an attic fire, "Hole In My Boat" features Stretch singing his heart out and playing acoustic rhythm guitar while Snake-Eyes McGee wails on electric lead. "Last Train" McLean makes his blues harp cry and sing on "Don't Bogart That Yogurt". The song "Lost Cat" is a particularly curious oddity - electronic "techno" elements seem to have been mysteriously amalgamated into the Stretch sound somehow (via some sort of time-machine aided collaboration, presumably.)

Naw, just kiddin’.

Stretch Alexander is actually the newest and bluest alter-ego of Sean Luciw, the ever-hungry genre-hopper responsible for such sonic adventures as Lex Plexus and the Sonic Defenders (idm/house/ambient), Guppy Tyke (acid fusion), Squeeky Leek (modal jazz rock) and who is also known for his guitaristic and production contributions to Sadistic Humor (thrash metal), Cozy Gelpod (pop), Structure (industrial) and Dr. Recommended (blues rock). This project is the result of a long-time festering urge to get his vocal chords moving to the same joyous musing energy that his fingers have been enjoying all these years. The blues genre, already a favourite to ponder on the guitar for the past few years, seemed the most natural path for the voice.
