"Here's To Amsterdam" by The Bottles

Here's to Amsterdam is the Bottles first and most celebrated musical release, harkening back to a time when music provided a non-video escape to that special place that only you could go within the misted caverns of your own mind.

Designed as Album Oriented Rock (AOR), this "thrill and chill-out" collection captures the fresh lively flavors of Gen-x youth and the spiritual mysticality of experimental drug use (without the actual use of drugs).

I personally guarantee this music, and I'll give you double your money back if you don't receive satisfaction from this product. (Your definition of "double" may vary from that of and its shareholders.)

"Phantom Cargo" by The Bottles

The Phantom Cargo. All that you have in this album is that which you bring in with you. It is entirely inert. This work's energy activates off of the spiritual reverberations within the recesses of one's subconscious. This music is utterly impartial.

Influenced greatly by the Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois works of the 1970s, this ambient offering builds upon that tradition by introducing a variety of organic instrumentation (including bagpipes) to the soundscape's palette. This album's diversity pours a liquid lounge chair upon which your soul can find fruit for its waking trance.

This is lush ambience. It is non-vocal, occasionally melodic, occasionally haunting. It aims to pacify the inner gears of the ever querying psyche. It's icy and diverting. It's warm and beautiful.

Carlos Jacott and John Lehr are renowned comedic improvisers gifted with a 'knack' for the nuances of bizarre situations. Some of their earliest performances together were in "ED", a wildly inventive improvisational comedy troupe assembled by director Jim Dennen and based out of Chicago. They have hence transferred to the beautiful city of angels and continue to generate a voluminous quantity of improvisational gold. In addition, on the side they've both happened to appear in numerous major motion pictures, prime-time television series and national advertisements.

In this improvisational piece, "Jäb & Jen" is a fictional (?) Latvian comedy team, circa 1954, idolized by two bland and fawning public radio talk show hosts. It's a brilliant combination of childish slapstick, and dry, subtle satire of such things as over-studied fanhood, the mindfully loving yet mind-numbing affirmations of public radio hosts, and the indignity of fame's oft slow demise.

Carlos and John play both pairs of characters in this straight-through improvisation audio play. The piece is designed to sound like a genuine NPR show (albeit from a strange perhaps alternate world). In particular, various "clips" of Jäb & Jen were designed to sound like live period recordings. With responsive audiences and on different qualities of media — Carlos and John drift effortlessly back and forth between the two sets of characters without skipping a beat. Only the aural environment changes around them. The original timing is left intact in the edited version. In addition, many foley sounds were added to create the illusion of an actual radio studio. Available here are excerpts from this radio play.
