Ineresting Thoughts and Retrospect...
The First release as Skarekrau Radio on Wiggpaw's CumSun label (and this is it's
only release) in 1993. Skarekrau Radio stemed off the band of a simular name "Scarecrow Radio" in which wiggpaw
played guitar. Once the band fizzled Wiggpaw called his recording projects "Fear of Cows" but after thinking it
was kinda dumb decided to go back to being called Scarecrow Radio since the other members didn't use it and
Wiggpaw likes the way it rolls. When this was decided Wiggpaw told his buddy the El Shorty on a CTA bus what the name
of his band was he sneezed at that same instant. IT came out "ScarAaaaca!Chu! Radio" and the El Shorty thought
it was wonderful.. So To the best of Wiggpaw's ablities tryed to spell it like the way he sneezed it came up with "Skarekrau
Radio" and later the name of the god "Kuu". It was a moment on that bus that started a revolution that
Wiggpaw had no idea. Kuu had found Wiggpaw. Kuu had found Wiggpaw!!! Anyway, the Cover art is a drawing
by The Ab R-3000. Other art work was done by Jen Hauser and Wiggpaw himself. There is even a liner note by Tom
McTighe in there. CumSun was a cassette label Wiggpaw started and dreamed of releasing old basement tapes and bathroom
crooning. Wanted recordings of bugs and thunderstorms. Wanted them to be all purpose. Wiggpaw
played some of these songs live in bars on open mic nights. Later played Czar Bar a couple times trying to pawn this tape.
Interesting fact is that "Scissor Girl" later became "Myspace Girl" on "The One Eyed Swine Is Queen".
The Scissor Girls were a rad band in Chicago around the time Wiggpaw lived in Chicago..a bitter sweet homage if you will...not
to say the wildly popular personal socal web site is in any way like the Sissor Girls, it just seemed like the lyrics
were pretty interchangable. Before the song was called "Sissor Girl" it was called "Indigo Girl."
