The Flying Mollusks

some more original trip-metal meat puppets inspired material

Todd Slater, Ned Berry and I did our first tape together under the name Ralph and the Dry Heaves, but a lot of the stuff we were doing at that time morphed into what we started to call Flying Mollusks material, an idea whose genesis I no longer recall other than I'd like to blame it on Ned. I used to blame everything on him, but he's bigger than me now so I don't do it as often anymore.

The Flying Mollusks never made it out of the basement so to speak, and we never made an official "album" to mark the time we spent working on stuff together, but years later (in 2000) Ned was over and we put together a bunch of the stuff on a CD and called it The Posthumous Save the Mollusks.
