In 2004, Then My Version of It members Jared “Sexfinger” Morris and Joe “Eazy E” Dugan recorded a song written by drummer Dave Grind for his band Oprichniki called “Cerebral Abscess.” Abscess originally appeared on the Oprichniki CD “Crapo”
The 2/3’s of MVOI recorded the song with an Asian vibe for Grind’s wedding. Recently, in preparing a Joe Dugan retrospective CD, Morris unearthed their version of “Cerebral Abscess” and was given permission by Grind for a digital release of the work.
The remaining songs compile 3/4 of an acoustic project Morris and Dugan recorded when on a brief hiatus from MVOI that contained the Year of the Comet songs “Year of the Comet” and “Melodrama Continues” and the My Version of It song “Lesson #28”
The remaining songs “Lesson #46” and “Lesson #47” show a quieter side of these two My Version of It mainstays.
Joe Dugan played the bass guitar for My Version of It from 2002-2006 and worked on many projects with Jared and Dave. On this CD he mans the bass, kalimba, slide whistle, the talking presidents, chess board and sings back up vocals.
