Fake Illusions

[click pic to embiggen] During the Ida/Beekeeper photo session for our split single, we entertained each other by one of us doing a ridiculously lame magic trick, and the other responding with unrealistic glee. As you can see, Dan got Jan falling-apart laughing. (Getting Jan to laugh that hard was such a joyful prize!) (L to R: Matthew, Liz, Jan, Dan)

Jan Recording Vocals

[click pic to embiggen] Jan could sing really really low. I never checked how low, but he could hit some serious bass. When we were recording Ostrich, he did the bottom in our three-octave chorus for the song Men.
