Mister Know-It All
Crack The Whip
years ago DC-Jam founder Darron Hemann attended a show at a club in Memphis.
One of the bands there --Trusty, a
Little Rock, Arkansas Hardcore band -- was unforgettable.
After they left Dischord
Records he signed them.

Record label President Hemann relates: "The Rudy
Schwartz Project -- insane, hilarious
music I first discovered
when purchasing a compilation tape on a High
School Daytona Beach spring break trip called "'Passed Normal.'
a song on there titled 'An Orange is Nothing But a Juicy Pumpkin' which
I thought was too cool."
This music is not easily to define. It sounds a lot like Zappa, Beefheart and Harry Partch. RSP has been
recommended by personalities as diverse as Rev. Ivan Stang, of the Church of the Subgenius
(on his "Hour of Slack" radio show), Jello Biafra and Zoogz Rift.
"Bowling for Appliances" is a re-issue of the Rudy Schwartz Project's first record. Due to the
politics surrounding the aftermath of 9-11, Joe Newman and his wife emigrated to Canada several years
ago, and he no longer makes music. Sad. Another American talent who has submerged
into the depths because of the cultural climate in the US.
