about

The complete set of 8 songs written and performed by the Cornelius Boots led prog-rock quartet Faun Tumnus, active in Bloomington, Indiana from 1997-1999. The predecessor to magnesium, which refined this format into a power trio. Both groups were fueled by the fever dreams of the one and only robot bass clarinet, a true rock bass clarinet manifestation.

These are the best renditions of the these songs, albeit primarily in the form of "bootleg" quality recordings. The "extra" tracks are the higher fidelity demos, but musically those performances do not carry the pure energy that the live tracks do. More video coming soon as well.
