NN 013 CD 


Music Is Just A Bunch Of Notes was cut in 1972 in an upstairs storefront building above a coffee house on Minneapolis’ West Bank. One of the counterculture’s first entirely DIY efforts, it was engineered by 12-string guitar legend DAVE “SNAKER” RAY and released on his fledgling Sweet Jane label. All of the songs are SPIDER JOHN KOERNER originals; the tunes are sequenced with a cinematic eye and interspersed with weird spoken word bits. The album includes several mainstays of John’s repertoire, including the timeless “Everybody’s Goin’ For The Money,” a song that sums up the uniquely Koernerian brand of existentialism as tidily as any. This CD is mastered from the original tapes and is reissued for the first time since the rare 1972 release. Includes a DVD, the 1970 “photo-skit” The Secret of Sleep, wherein Percival (John Koerner) gets a call in which he’s told to go on a mysterious quest. Percy and his buddy (WILLIE MURPHY) wander around in various utopian settings, but in the end, they return to the city to contend with reality.
