(no, i'm not making this up). they were a trio from cleveland, the leader was guitarist tom herman, of pere ubu fame. the other two members included a drummer (whose name i've forgotten) and ... this is the magical part ... a tripod with a tape recorder that endlessly played a loop of a dog barking. the dog was supposedly of the three-legged variety and belonged to herman's neighbor, if i recall. great f****** band. i played on a bill with them many years ago, in the now spiritually defunct 'anti-club' in hollywood (corner of normandy and melrose, for you l.a.-ites). never saw a leica in that place. guess that makes this off topic. hmm. guy.
