Yup. From 1985 to 1993 I was in a band with the polite name of Vomit Launch. One of our songs, "Exit Lines" is in a movie called "The Wackness", in theaters now. A pretty damn good movie, and our song fits the scene too well! Most of our back catalog will be on iTunes and Amazon by Sept. The song in the movie was produced by Greg Freeman (Tape Op #1) and our later records were produced by John Baccigaluppi (why does that name seem familiar?) The soundtrack is by David Torn (Tape Op #49). http://www.vomitlaunch.com/, http://www.sonyclassics.com/thewackness/VL Credits.jpg

Larry Crane said about this:

1/2" 8-track, cheap mixing board and a simple mic collection. Mixed to 1/4" tape. Great engineer/producer/pal in Greg Freeman.
