of the Piano. This is DJ's original long playing record
on 12 inch vinyl. It is currently out of print.
Update Jan. 10, 2010: Beware
of the Piano was due to be re-released this winter, but the vanity label that for years had verbally agreed to
put out the album, backed out at the penultimate minute. When it came time to actually sign the deal, all of a
sudden the label didn't have the money to do the project. So at the moment, DJ has no record deal.
Songs on Beware of the Piano include:
"Greedy Little Monsters;" "Bedtime Tears;" "Lousy Personality;" "Judy is a Punk" by the Ramones; "Airplane"
which has 4 parts to it, namely "Airplane," "Zombi," "The Barking Song," and "Doggy"; "Holiday in Cambodia" by
Dead Kennedys; "My Humble Home; " "The King of Happiness;" "Because of my Hemorroids;" "Jump Start my Heart" written
by John Iversen of the Stickers; "Racism Sucks" by Seven Seconds; "Breathe on Me"; and "Have Hope."
Unless otherwise indicated all songs are written by
"Smoke Suffer, and
Die" a 7 inch 33rpm single on red vinyl. The B side is an instrumental version of "Starting
Again" by the late Eric Stuart who used to sing this song with his band Learning Corporation. The only commercially
released recording of this song is the DJL rendition on this disk.
This record is not widely available in stores
at this time. However, there may be a few available in the near future in San Francisco and Berkeley stores in California,
and by mail order. If and when that happens, you'll find the details here on this page.

but like his first album, it will be a long time in coming. We'll keep you posted.
