|The Story Behind the Clown
Several years back, Kyle Sowash of The Kyle Sowashes and Solyoni's Dan Lurie went to a Baskin-Robbins to savor some ice cream. It was there that a young boy ordered a vanilla clown, the beloved upside-down ice cream cone delicacy. The adorable child proceeded to describe in great detail how he was going to eat the clown. His words were so morbid and disturbing, Lurie felt compelled to write them down in a pocket notebook. Sowash and Lurie then decided they would each compose a vanilla clown song using the boy's words as lyrics, but neither artist would hear the other's song until both were complete. We now present to you, on petroleum vinyl, the results of that experiment. Enjoy!
