Jad Fair, half of Half Japanese and a regular collaborator with plenty of other acts (Daniel Johnston! The Pastels) here teams up with Kramer, the mysterious and legendary producer / label-runner who worked with Galaxie 500 to name but one band. The History Of Crying is an album of surprising songs, with special guest guitar solo appearances from Paul Leary of Butthole Surfers! LP on Shimmy 500.

10/10 Michael Sagan Customer review, 15th June 2017
I've never heard anything like this in my life. I've never heard Jad Fair SING before (melodies, i mean, like SINATRA!), and I've never heard Kramer do anything so sublime or touched me so deeply. 12 Love Songs, no screaming, no "noise" (other than the amazing guitar solos by ex-Butthole Surfer PAUL LEARY!!!), and no dull moments anywhere to be found.
I've waited 20 years for Jad Fair & Kramer to make another LP together. It was worth the wait.
This LP is stunning. I'm already wearing it out (it's on Kramer's brand new VINYL-ONLY label, SHIMMY-500).
