Six bands, the regular weekly lineup, recorded live at the Little Theatre Cafe in May of 2004. This cd featuures the Brady Miller Trio, The White Hots, Ben Gallina Trio, Margaret Explosion, Trio East, Bob Sneider Duo, Diane Armesto Quartet, and Gene Bertoncini. The Margaret Explosion track, "Floating At The Bug Jar" features Pete LaBonne on piano.

Released in late 2003, "1969" is an organic exploration of wide open sonic landscapes. Recorded live to four tracks at Studio 55, the sax, guitar, drums and bass lineup nods to that period that zoomed by when rock met jazz.

The Margaret Explosion lineup now includes three former members of Personal Effects and the new cd includes an instrumental of “Don’t Wake Me” from Personal Effects’ 1983 debut album.

City Newspaper said: "Margaret Explosion is an otherworldly lounge band that played an esoteric weekly Friday night happy hour at the Bug Jar. The ethereal soundtrack they provided cast an often eerie, slow-motion effect on the just-out-of-work crowd's revelries. The group's improvised minor-key melodies bathed the room in a melancholy glow, suggesting old eight-millimeter home movies, and blurring the line between experience and reminiscence."

“Outta Sight, Outta Mind” is instrumental so it works in all languages. It rocks the sub-conscience. Invisible Idiot's music is drenched in a Sunday afternoon daydream. “Outta Sight, Outta Mind” will make you see things with your ears. A limited edition of 500 cds was engraved in two colors at Paul Klem's in Rochester, New York. The band logo is blind embossed. The package is as seductive as the music.

City Newspaper says “Outta Sight, Outta Mind” is a brilliant soundtrack, for whatever movie happens to come along"

These twelve songs from the legendary Pete LaBonne fit together so well that they might contain the secrets of the universe. Only repeated listening will tell.

City Newspaper says “Pete Labonne is a genius. A master of the little word/big concept school of songwriting.”

Bob Martin, formerly with Personal Effects, has crafted this guitar-based, instrumental collection of worldly soundscapes for yoga teachers and massage therapists to use in their work. If you aren't into either of these practices, it's perfect for spacing out on your own.
