Turkey Makes Me Sleepy celebrated its 10 Year Anniversary on April 26th, 2007 with an all-day improvisational recording session. Before that day, group members Michael Adams (Mikadams), Charles Rice Goff III, and Eric Matchett had not all been in a single room at the same time since 2000. The session took place at the Taped Rugs Productions studio in Lawrence, Kansas.

Goff edited the audio highlights of the group’s anniversary marathon into the seven pieces presented here. Some portions of the recordings were deleted; some of the remaining portions were spliced together; no sound effects were added. What you have here is essentially "the big part of the wishbone."

A video recording camera was placed in a corner of the studio for a brief time during this session. Goff subsequently played around some with the resulting video, adding photos, effects, and the in-line audio track, creating the lo fi video presented at the link below:

Taped Rugs Productions has produced twelve Turkey Makes Me Sleepy audio releases since 1997. Band members Mikadams, C. Goff III, and Eric Matchett each have a long history of being involved in experimental audio projects and other artistic endeavors.
