For Paper Bag's 4th release, we wanted to do something which, in a way, we'd been doing all along: release a live album. Everything else we'd put out had been live in the studio; but we thought it would be nice to get the point across just a little further by having an audience audibly involved.
This is probably our most rock oriented album, but there are still a lot of very odd things going on. Of course! It's Paper Bag.

Paper Bag: was formed in 1983 by Greg Segal and M. Segal. (A full listing of members, from the band's inception to the present, can be found in Musicians & Lineup history.) The idea was to take improvisational music into new territory and develop a method to expand it as an art form. In 7/85, the line-up solidified to Greg Segal, guitar; M. Segal, drums, percussion and vocals; Kenny Ryman, keyboards, tape loops, vocals and percussion; and George Radai, bass. It is this version of the band that is best known, and which, in the late 1980s, recorded 4 releases for SST records and 26 radio sets of completely original music that received international airplay.

Paper Bag eventually lost Kenny Ryman and gained David McIntire on vocals. This lineup remained stable until the band's semi-retirement in 1991. There have been several reappearances since then., including a reappearance of Kenny in both a musical and a production role.

A new band, Bag: Theory, with M. Segal, was formed in 1999. Bag Theory released CDs and gigged extensively. The once and future Bag: Theory strictly follows the Paper Bag: method of improvisation. For more info, please follow the link from the band name to Bag: Theory's site.
