The recent passing of Robert Fisher has motivated me to finally transfer to digital the recordings we did together, back in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. We played together in a band called Laughing Academy.

I was surprised to read interviews with him in later years where he didn’t mention the band. I was in it for five years, and he had an earlier incarnation for another five years. That is a lot of time to gloss over. Perhaps it was a marketing decision, since Willard Grant was a radical departure.

At any rate, I’ve copied and uploaded to Bandcamp most of the Laughing Academy catalog. Two of the albums were never released.

Fish — recorded in in Portland, Maine, circa 1987, with Paul Austin, Jeff Platz and Mike Dank. Never released.

Laughing Academy (vinyl LP) — recorded and released in Boston, 1990, with Paul, Tom King, and myself

Wildwood/Ensenda (7” single) — released 1991

No Such Thing As Clean (LP) — recorded in 1992 and never released

They call all be heard at https://laughingacademy.bandcamp.com/.

I thought you might be interested in hearing them.
