Geoff Mullen & I met after he had taped one of his demos to the door of the co-op house I was living in in Somerville back in the early 2000s. We quickly became close friends & I formed a label, Entschuldigen, to release said demo on CD. We began recording & playing as a duo shortly thereafter & I hired Geoff to help me helm Mimaroglu Music after its awkward out-growing of said co-op & its move into the spacious Porter Square loft it occupied for 7 years; those were the salad days.
We issued a 100-copy duo LP on Mimaroglu's in-house imprint no. of a concert at Somerville's Portugese-American Lounge where every copy's cover image was a different still taken throughout the night. A year later, Dan "Oneohtrix Point Never" Lopatin issued a disc on his fledgeling Upstairs CDR label, which we briefly P&D'ed at Mimaroglu. Jeff "Rene Hell" Witscher readied a cassette release of ours on his Agents of Chaos imprint under the name Any Given Sunday later the same year, completing the format trifecta.
A planned fourth issue, a double-something (View-Master reel? Web Page?) despite being incredible, remains in conceptual limbo.
