Gino Vanilla

Walking along Queen in Toronto, we dropped into Rotate This to look for something to sample. Dean asked the snooty record clerk for “the worst record in the whole store”. He quickly pulled out a milk crate from underneath some shelves, WAY in the back, and grabbed a Gino Vanelli record. He handed it to Dean and said “Just take it, please!” That was pretty much all we needed. We took it straight to my apartment and threw it on the Hi-fi, and proceeded to cringe, moan, holler, and laugh our asses off. It was the most pompous, offensive, shitty music we’d ever heard. We immediately decided to write an entire song using NOTHING but samples from it; a process we’ve since repeated several times (creating songs from nothing but Gino Vanelli samples) – we’ve dubbed the process “The Human Gino Project”. After taking what we could find, we then shattered the record on the ground (and then put it back on the turntable to sample it again — broken), and put the pieces into the vegetable crisper in my fridge, where it remained for a good six months at least. Thanks for the samples, Gino.
