Cover design by David Lester (1999). BUD OSBORN: “I’ve always liked rock and roll, and it’s been very important to me. I wanted to have music that would drive the poem perhaps in another way or amplify the meanings. Originally I worked with a couple of jazz musicians, but then I heard David Lester (longtime guitarist for Mecca Normal) play his electric guitar. It clicked right away.”
