The Lie of a Pipe Dream

The Lie of a Pipe Dream, originally just Ben Johnson, became a collaboration between Ben Johnson and Quinn Kukor; it eventually expanded to include Anthony Moser and Jason Mlcoch, and then later Mat Johnson and Tristan Murphy. Below is the complete discography of The Lie of a Pipe Dream, done entirely with primitive home recording equipment. Only a couple hundred CDs were ever made, total, so most of this is not available anywhere else. You may find that with some of the songs that’s a good thing. Here they are, from earliest to latest. You can also watch videos of The Lie of a Pipe Dream.
