whoever else showed up that day.....





In 1992, the Tin Kan Caravan emerged as the band that performed solely in the living room of 28 Hess Street in the oregon district in Dayton, Ohio. Whoever showed up that day would be in the Caravan. Of course, the boys listed above always showed up and the rest well, just fell into line. After several sessions of playing together, the TKC finally came up with what would be called the "Freakout Factory". The definitive Tin Kan Caravan album. Definition of Freakout Factory- a bunch of people getting together and spitting out music in tumultuous amounts, hard to swallow groves. TKC was unable to ever make it out of the living room, over there on Hess Street but, hopefully, these recordings will give you a little idea of what was going behind the walls, buried in the depths of Johnny's POSH living room.

All the above music belongs to the members of Tin Kan Caravan. All music was recorded in 1992 at 28 Hess Street, Dayton, Ohio on ritch kern's 4-track. Ritch & Bill engineered the sound of Tin Kan Caravan. Take five and fur elise which sound like a cover probably were a cover with the TKC spin.

This album/ project is dedicated to the late great Kevin William Kelly!!!
