Phaux Cisco


Originally envisioned as a simple but meaningful birthday gift for James Cisco, primary songwriter for Cisco Caesar, on the occasion of his 40th birthday, this album is a collection of his songs from 1988 through to today reimagined and re-recorded by members of his musical family.  In many cases due to the short lead time artists had to learn and record the song within a couple of weeks or only days so the results are pretty impressive.  Featuring professional musicians, poets, children, untrained singers and even family members and friends who stepped way out of their comfort zones to show their love for the man and his music, this album turned into a 2012 favourite for many who were lucky enough to score one of the only 40 copies made. 

The huge response as those 40 CDs were played for friends and family has meant we have fielded numerous requests to make it available for purchase.  So here it is, in all it's glory: Phaux Cisco - pay what you think it's worth and the funds will go towards a community arts project supporting songwriters.

Note: The project worked so well that we are also working on developing a community arts project utilising the flexibility of a Creative Commons license to encourage others to find those songs that have been forgotten, abandoned or are simply hiding in the back shed and get them back out into the world whether it is by finally recording them or submitting them to the arts community so someone else can reimagine them and get them heard.   More news on this as we develop the idea and dedicated website, feel free to get in touch if you'd like to be involved.
