Shoestrings: 16th Anniversary (2017) (album download)
In 2001, Dan & Jay’s Comedy Hour (Dan Gomiller and Jason Klamm) released their first comedy album, Shoestrings, on the burgeoning MP3.com. Written and recorded in Laurens and Oneonta, New York, Shoestrings was the only sketch comedy album released that year that was written and recorded in Upstate New York. We assume.
As a result of the MP3.com exposure, Dan and Jay welcomed an unexpected following in Australia and, that same year, released one of the world’s first viral videos. Their follow-up album, Jenny Is A Slute, was recorded but never completed, and it wouldn’t be until 2014 that they would release one of their CDs, Ho, Christmas Tree!” to the public. In 2016, Dan and Jay followed this up with Vinyl Dwarf, the world’s smallest comedy record, at only 1.5 inches in diameter.
In 2017, as the album celebrates its Sweet 16, Celery Sound Records have re-released Shoestrings, featuring tracks from Jenny Is A Slute and one of Dan and Jay’s privately-released Christmas albums.
