Members: Tim Kinsella

During a period of time when everyone was going all solo- Tim saw Joan of Arc crumble in his own hands. Tim's response was to go plural and in 2001 he released his first effort as Tim Kinsellas - He Sang His Didn't He Danced His Did on Troubleman Unlimited. The album was Tim and an untuned accoustic guitar - the result was a very minimalist album- a Jacques Brel cover, and four songs reworked from Live in Chicago 1999, and How Memory Works. A final track on the album was a few seconds of static. Tim would later reunite Joan of Arc. In 2002 Demands Feminist Critique was released on BoxMedia - a limited to 50 Ep released under the name Gene McDonald/Ronald Simmons and featuring a cover of Blues Runs the Game - 18 minutes long recorded while Tim was naked and high. The album included another minimal cover of The Amorous Humphrey Plugg in which Tim switched the tempo of the chorus and verse. The first two tracks of the album were computer works Tim did that would foreshadow the "noise" tracks off Joan of Arc's ... Dick Cheney, Mark Twain album. In 2005 Tim recorded CrucifixSwastika - an EP written on his honeymoon. The album was the first solo effort that may be considered a more proper album. The songs were accoustic driven and enlisted the help of friends Bobby Burg and Nate Kinsella to add depth. Released on Record Label. Although no large tour persisted Tim continues to play solo sets for benefits, charities, and extra cash as able - sometimes playing Joan of Arc songs in addition to his own solo tracks. In 2007 Tim released his first full-length album on I had An Accident Records. Field Recordings of Dreams- originally thought to be titled "Notebook on Tape" is in effect just that. The experience begins with guitar meanderings and field recordings- a sense of place in a tour van- being on the road - back stage at a show - the album continues with harmonica pieces entwined within the guitar workings and a break for philosophical spoke word tracks - a chance to listen to what is going through Tim's mind. The album finishes with a 30 minute informal story Tim wrote centering around a pitcher on a little leage basesball team - nostalgia.
