The Tinklers' second album is a considerably lighter affair than the rather creepy and disturbing Casserole. Where that album focused on bizarre psychodramas, Saplings is downright playful in spots. Several tracks are silly exercises in spoken word onomatopoeia like "Zoom," "Chugga-Chugga," and "Quack Quack Beep Beep. Other tunes are somewhat more serious, like the true ecological story of "The Dodo Bird and the Calvaria Tree" and the vaguely disturbing "Kid With a Curved Spine. Saplings is defiantly weird stuff, but it's not as difficult as the debut.
The Tinklers are a band from Baltimore who have been together since 1979. The group consists of Charles Brohawn and Chris Mason, both of whom sing, play guitar, and percussion instruments of varying degrees of quality (including cigar boxes, spoons, and other types of junk). Both members are also actively engaged in creating art in other mediums including visual art and books. The band would release two more LPs on Shimmy Disc - Saplings and Crash - all of which contain similar material. While The Tinklers have not disbanded, since 1993 the band has released only one full-length album, Slowpoke, and made a few other compilation appearances. Live performances are infrequent. Outside of The Tinklers, Brohawn also released a CD with Asa Osborne of Lungfish under the name Tear Jerks on Secret Eye Records.
Although the first Tinklers album did not come out until 1990, the roots of the band are in the mid-'70s performance art scene in their native Baltimore. Charles Brohawn was a painting and sculpture student at the Maryland Institute College of Art when he met Chris Mason, a Minnesota native who had moved to Maryland to study poetry in the creative writing program at Johns Hopkins University. The 1992 follow-up, Saplings, was closer in content to the Tinklers' early performances, as was the celebratory EP James Brown, released on Washington, . s Simple Machines label the same year. The 1993 LP Crash and the science fiction-themed 1995 EP UFOs found Brohawn and Mason moving into a slightly more mainstream arena, dropping the 30-second song fragments and allowing a slightly more mature world view into their music.
