Welcome to Perth. There’s a rumour (#2) going round and we’d like to make the best use of it. So, we thought that maybe we could enclose this newstype letter and maybe you would read it. The music you may now be hearing – that is if rumour (#2) is going round was put together and collected through the combined energies of 11 crazies travelling across Ontario-headed west in an old yellow school bus. The material was recorded live in concert at Ottawa, Sudbury and Winnipeg. Cedric, bob, Richard, Judy, Michael and David provided the music. Dorit, Penny and Jesse assist and will dance through your mind- god willing, harry keeps the pot boiling so to speak and give us light. Stone age-affectionately known as David and Garf provide the sound and help tremendously in all things especially in getting this rumour rolling. Boycott kraft – don’t forget to boycott kraft- boycott Mostly, we’d like to say that we had a good time putting this music together. Music gets us high. That’s what music is. We hope we can share this with you. There is also a great sense of satisfaction in presenting this album. We are able to bypass the traditional stumbling block – c.b.s. – and produce and distribute this rumour personally. The music industry generally rips off the artist as badly as the buyer much in the same way that kraft rips off the farmer as well as the customer.
In and around Perth county there are a growing number of people committed to finding real alternatives to the corporate industrial structure. Rumour records is one beginning. There are others; several freaks have put together a fine wood working shop in an old barn – collectively known as the grass master toys – and with time and loving care make safe and imaginative wooden toys for all kids. There are other craftsmen making it and there are many fine spirits raising beautiful kids and growing the things that go into their bodies. But there are many things we need. Mostly we need a collection of energies from which we can draw out information and skills and exchange life experiences. We would like to collect and disseminate this information. We want to know about real free school alternatives that are working, about co-operative life arrangements that will do away with the corporate structure. It disappears when left alone. boycott kraff - don’t forget to boycott kraft – boycott When your head is filled with space for searching consider this rumour. All inquiries and replies will be collected at box 173, Stratford, Ontario.
Thank you Jesse
Our thanks, with respect and admiration to Milton Acorn, Michael Ondaatje, and Woody Cuthrie.
