THE HISTORY OF CRYING is JAD FAIR & KRAMER's third collaboration, and their first in almost 20 years; 12 brand new songs recorded in 2017, produced and mixed by Kramer at his Noise Miami studio, and remixed in 2020 on Brian Wilson's UA610 console for a long-lost analog clarity that will burn like an exploding sun between your ears. Longtime fans of Jad Fair will be stunned by how he SINGS on this LP. No other LP in Jad's storied career features him singing complex melodies in the manner he does here. This LP also features psychotic guitar solos on each and every song by PAUL LEARY (Butthole Surfers), so BS fans will go hog wild. Almost 30 years after their first LP, "Roll Out The Barrel" (Shimmy-012), Jad Fair and Kramer are back like wildfire. (excerpt from Kramer’s “Producer’s Notes” for THE HISTORY OF CRYING)…

KRAMER: Hey. Jad. Listen. We haven’t made a record together for almost 20 years. JAD: Well yes, I think it would be about 20 years. It’s been quite a good long time now. KRAMER: So we should fix that, right? JAD: Well yes, i would think that 20 years is, perhaps, a bit too long between records. KRAMER: So why don’t you send me some lyrics, and i’ll get started. JAD: OK, but, well, i’m just so terribly busy right now with so many records coming out, and I, I’m… I just don’t think I’d be able to write new lyrics for at least a few months. Maybe even not until June or…I’m just so busy right now. KRAMER: Hmmm. OK. Well, what if I sent you 12 song titles? Would that help? JAD: You mean, like, right now? KRAMER: Well, in about ten minutes. Gimme ten minutes. JAD: Oh well then I can definitely get you the lyrics by Friday.
