IF ONE IS GOOD, TWO ARE BETTER! Double Redundancy (2004) combines the elh releases Einstein's Little Homunculus and Trampling The Perennials into one 24 track monstrosity! In the beginning, two cunning linguists (seriously!), one Fine classmate and a wicked good percussionist teamed up at the University of Rochester. Recorded in the studios of WRUR and live at the Sunken Room Coffeehouse, Rochester, NY, October-December 1993, it was released on cassette (!), and has been unavailable for years. Until now! Lovingly remixed by Paul Crook, Einstein's Little Homunculus: Paul Crook and Derek Gross with Ione Fine and Barbara Johnston sounds better than ever on CD and includes (of course) previously unreleased material. It even includes performances by future band member Sue Gedutis. Oh, the miracle of modern technology! Defying conventional wisdom, young men Paul Crook and Derek Gross went East to Boston and assembled a new lineup of homunculi in 1994, the very group that went on to win the Boston Acoustic Underground competition. Trampling the Perennials was recorded live to 4-Track in Carol Laliberté's yoga room, Weston, MA, April 20-21, 1995. Produced by Tim Heffernan and remastered at Wellspring Sound, Concord, MA, December 1995, it was then reproduced by Paul Crook and re-remastered by Colin Sapp at Specialized Mastering, Framingham MA. Pay attention, this WILL be on the test! Rob Rudin executive produced, and Sarah Peters created the beautiful cover art. What does it all mean? The music just keeps getting better!
