4. What's The Ugliest Part Of Your Body? - Acoustic Ross 

ACOUSTIC ROSS is an AntiFolk artist & music nerd who believes solo sounds need not be boring, quiet, or mellow - just good. Equal parts folk, punk, rock, blues, country, pop, with a dash of standup comedy to taste, ACOUSTIC ROSS assaults the stale & stagnant with intelligence & irreverence - high-energy Service with a Smirk.

In a record collection with every format from Victrola 78s to digital downloads, the first CD I ever owned was Zappa's "We're Only In It for the Money." Zappa completists and no one else will be curious to know that it's the "Lumpy Gravy" combo version with the scandalous Barrow/Wackerman overdubs, which I got in 1989, 6 months before owning anything to play it on. Ahem. Anyway. Four years later I'm starting to feel my way around my first 4-track, and between... uh, let's call them 'uninspired originals'... I record my own variation on "What's the Ugliest Part of Your Body?" just for something to sink my teeth into, and promptly do nothing with it when I'm finished. In September 2010 I dig it up, and with a little more percussion and megaphone work, this little artifact finally emerges from its 15-year exile. I guess I don't hate it.
