Shreveport, LA
Avant-Garde

(Partially taken from Wikipedia.)
"The album pares down the concept and structure of the average commercial pop song and reduces it to a one-minute redux. It contains a compilation of 40 such sixty-second vignettes. The album used several session musicians, including Chris Cutler, Snakefinger and Fred Frith as well as two anonymous guest vocalists, Lene Lovich ("Picnic Boy") and Andy Partridge ("Margaret Freeman"). The faces on the album cover are John Travolta and Barbra Streisand. The first edition listed the tracks in the wrong order on the sleeve."
