Formerly of Glass Eye. Premier interpreter of Daniel Johnston on the album Dead Dog’s Eyeball. Maker of the album Another Day in the Sun. Writer of the hit song Red Canyon Walls.
Released in 1996 on Bar None Records, Dead Dog’s Eyeball: The Songs of Daniel Johnston remains the premier (and America’s most beloved) Daniel Johnston cover album.
NEWLY RELEASED ON VINYL AS A DELUXE DOUBLE ALBUM, it has been newly remastered from the original tapes by the legendary Joe Gastwirt. The gorgeous gatefold heavy cardboard cover was graphically designed by Ron Marks (formerly of the band Texas Instruments.) In addition to all the songs on the 1996 version, this double album now contains the live version of THE CREAURE as well as the additional tracks WORRIED SHOES, LOVE WHEEL, and IT’S OVER from the EP “Sorry Entertainer.” It is now AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE at the RexyRex Records website, for that is the fine record label that has sunk a small fortune into its production.
Glass Eye was an Austin, Texas based band that played original, durable rock music. Formed by Brian Beattie, Kathy McCarty, Stella Weir and Scott Marcus in 1983, their initial release Marlo (1985) and sophomore release HUGE (1986) brought the group to regional and national attention. Between 1986 and 1988, Sheri Lane and Dave Cameron replaced Weir and Marcus, during which time the band recorded Bent By Nature (1987). Then Marcus and Weir rejoined the band and the original foursome went on to record Hello Young Lovers (1989) and the posthumously released Every Woman’s Fantasy (2005). Glass Eye disbanded in 1993, after delighting tens of thousands of discerning fans across the United States for an entire decade.
