An early, sort of pre-Ragman project, Stephen Oulman’s Tot Lot Band was formed by Steve Wilson improvising songs with Stephen Oulman, a 7-year-old kid who lived next door. Mike and Ben Wilson and Joe Riehle ended up getting involved, along with Chris Vanderwall from the next house over. They had already put out a few short cassette albums before Joe and I ever met, but at one point Joe, wrote a letter to me after getting my address from one of the TapeSNotRecords tapes I had put out, to ask if I would be interested in helping with production of their next tape, but never got around to sending it. This collection brings together the group’s entire pre-Ragman output, in chronological order: Defective, Wood], Enjoy Life…, and Ramp Jump, along with a smattering of previously unreleased stuff and Defector, a song-by-song parody of Defective recorded by the one-off band X-Factor, made up of various SOTLB and Symphon-E members.
