ONE FELL SWOOP - A Really Wanky Live Thing

Oct. 8 ,1991 ,between 2 and 4 a.m. ,Ed,Joel,& Chipmonk ,drank a bottle of Bacardi dark ,and busted out this tape! The lead track,(Teach Wants Quiet!) features samples from one of the first (1949), juvenile delinquent movies ,"City Across the River" ,about a gang of kids named "The Amboy Dukes" (from whence The Nuge pinched the name for his early group). The samples come from the shop scene ,when the boys are givin the"teach" ,a hard time.We did this song live several times,and it was always a hit!!Fucking hilarious!!! People loved getting into the song!there is also a Kiss cover ,and a few revealing spoken pieces,plus the all-important ,"One Fell Swoop Code" ,which doubles as a "life" code.And my old dog ,Iggy ,puts vocals on ,"The Dog Says ,'How' ". Then we took a break and recorded the tape above this between 5:30 and 7:30 on Oct 8 ,1991. So check that out!!
