CHRIS STROFFOLINOI’M NOT GOING ASTRAY, 7″

Chris Stroffolino is a former Silver Jew who moved to Los Angeles and found himself without a permanent home, living out of a 1983 Ford Econoline van in which he’d fitted an upright piano (the now famous “Piano Van”). He is a musician, a scholar with a Ph.D in Shakespearian studies and a published poet – but he was playing the piano for tips in order to survive, which is how Jeff Feuerzeig (the filmmaker responsible for The Devil And Daniel Johnston and other musician theme films.) discovered him. These three tracks were all recorded in the van in Griffith Park, Los Angeles. There is a cover of Alice Cooper’s “I Never Cry”
