Mr. S, or "Con," as he is also affectionately referred to, interacted quite a bit with New York Cassette Culture Homerecording Experimentalist Gen Ken Montgomery over the years -- lots of collaborations, both audio and visual.    There is a brand new GENERATOR cassette/online release of experimental music which features a bit of Con plus many other underground artists -- may be of interest to adventurous listeners and underground music lovers...

I remember Generator. Even went to the store in NYC and saw a couple shows there Charles Cohen and Thomas Dimuzio.

Poison Plant had stuff for sale in the shop. Too bad it never panned out.
