about

"the double record Trash Picture / August Demos is the 5th or 7th or 9th C. Weisman release from OSR (depending on whether you count the Marshfield Set & Better Psychics albums or the giant covers compilation ) . hermetically sealed as he is behind an anti-publicity forcefield generated in part by the geopsychical conditions of Brattleboro Vermont & sustained by his transcendentalist guitar teaching / musical meditation practice , Chris's lack of 'critical reception' / economic leverage is legendarily discordant with the unparalleled quality of his writing & musicianship & the mythic respect he commands in my social circles simply by the sheer force of his musical gifts & personality . these records are a prehistory to Chris's wave of massive productivity beginning in 2008 with the still-unpublished Bicycle Operator And Coach & should be heard as the free work of someone completely uninitiated to whatever cultural-economic rituals he's since had to contend with & found insufficient . and this is sufficient" -- www.osr-tapes.com
