might be lumpy gravyyou heard...<br><br>From Civilization Phaze III booklet <br>  In 1967, we spent about four months recording various projects (Uncle Meat, We're Only In It For The Money, Ruben and The Jets and Lumpy Gravy) at APOSTOLIC STUDIOS, 53 E. 10th ST NYC. One day I decided to stuff a pair of U-87's in the piano, cover it with heavy drape, put a sand bug on the sustain pedal and invite anybody in the vicinity to stick their head inside and remble incoherently about the various topics I would suggest to them via talk-back system.  <br>  This set-up remained in the place for several days. During that time, many hours of recording was made, most of it useless. Some people who took the challenge included Spider Barbour ( leader of the rock group _Crysalys_, which was also recording at Apostolic when we weren't booked in, All-Night John (the studio manager), Gilly Towney (sister of the guy who owned the studio), Monica (the receptionist), Roy Estrada and Motorhead Sherwood (members of the _Mothers Of Invention_), Louis Cuneo (a guy who used to come to our live shows at the Garrick Theater and laugh like a psychotic turkey), and a few others.  <br>  Some of this dialog -- after extensive editing -- found its way into the Lumpy Gravy album
