JAMES HILL - "Painful Contractions" (1984)

 James Hill is a very talented trumpet player who first came to my attention because of his work on Don Campau's amazing double cassette called "Piñata Party."
I sent out a lot of unsolicited tapes to musicians, and I probably never heard back from about 20% of them, and who can blame them? Our music wasn't for everybody, and a lot of people just didn't have time, interest, or any inclination to reply! James Hill was one of those, and I think I told Don that it was too bad because I really liked what I had heard of his music, and so Don sent me this tape after that!
My favorite song on this tape was titled "Pussy Patrol" but a tune that better highlights James's talent is this!
