if something works, do it again and again and again and again and again (100 records project)

Check out this video of San Francisco musician Sonny Smith and his 100 Records Project. He made up 100 fake bands, wrote 100 songs for each band and asked his musician and artist friends to help him record them and create the album covers. Repetitive process without repetitive results.  All of these songs stand on their own as great jams. There was a box set of 7-inch records released in conjunction with the art show but it has since sold out. They are offering the 2nd volume on iTunes now though. My favorite track is  definitely “I Wanna Do It” by Earth Girl Helen Brown.
