from the press release:
"Between 1997 and 2000, Jason Henn collected dozens of tapes full of instrumental home recordings and collages assembled in his neighborhood public radio station's production studio. In the summer of 2001, he took a briefcase of his tapes on a Greyhound trip from Indiana to Athens, Georgia, where they were further overdubbed and curated into an album by Hiro Noodles, a songwriter whose self-released solo records had been described locally as a blend of Melvins and Monkees. The results were credited to Kitchen Typists, released in limited number on Dust Bunny Records, and all but vanished soon after being released. Sponic Magazine boosted the album, declaring that it "initiates the kind of head-scratching that leaves the lisenter smiling in his or her confusion," and a 2005 compilation on Third Uncle was described by Time-Lag Records as "experimental music that goes somewhere."

Discovered in a stack of mystery discs during a recent BlueSanct housecleaning, An Impossible Program presents an unused sequence of much of the material that made up that lone Kitchen Typists album, featuring alternate edits and mixes plus previously unreleased tracks and radio sessions. We speculate it might have been intended for an Orphanology release as early as 2002, but has been lost since. It amounts to a sort of accidental best of, maybe the most cohesive and listenable presentation of Kitchen Typists' bedroom collage aesthetic."

"Imagine the wit of The Freed Weed, the boldness of John Cale and the budget of a high school band, and you're pretty much there."

about

Orphanology Bloomington, Indiana

Orphanology is a Day2 allied label within Bluesanct.

Orphanological releases meant to document the spaces between releases and the lost ones that never made it.

The physical releases tend to sell out very quickly, as intended, so we've decided to release them digitally for those who miss out the first time around.
