Tym records and Steve have got together to offer you 4 track 7" It presenting two sides of Steve's personality and love of music.
Side 1 is "garage" Steve with two short, dirty gems in the form of Summertime, originally written and recorded by Charles Douglas and featured Moe Tucker on drums. The second song on side 1 is Down the Drain and features Robb Clarke and Stone Gossard from a side project demo recorded under the band name The Lopes.
Flip the vinyl and side 2 comes up all folk and country with two beautiful acoustic songs in the form of I-5 Corridor, which is a one take wonder recorded by Steve and an acoustic guitar in September 2013 at Third Man Records' Record Booth direct to 5" clear vinyl and transferred onto this EP for your pleasure. The second song on side 2 is Snow County Weavers and is adapted from a James Welch Poem and put to music by Steve.
This little Tym records 4 track 7" EP is called Steve Turner And Four Of His Bad Ideas and is available on limited edition brown vinyl in June.
Cover artwork is by Photocoyote and features drawings of Steve in both punk and folk incarnations with half the 7"s with "punk Steve" on the cover and half with "folk Steve". Liner notes by Steve describe and explain the songs and personnel in more detail and like all Tym records each one is hand numbered with love
