I, Fish Driver

September 6th, 2011

I mentioned my 1993 experience as a Fish Driver in the latest installment of the ’65 Impala Hell Project series, but didn’t want to clog up the gallery with too many Fish Driving photographs. While I was grinding it out at this unpleasant delivery-truck gig, I had an idea that I would record a Murilee Arraiac album entitled “I, Fish Driver,” with a musical piece representing each stop along the Fish Route. For the album artwork, I’d need a self-portrait, and so I took many while driving my route. Nothing ever came of the album idea, but I still have the photos of me piloting an Econoline, a Mitsubishi Fuso, and an Isuzu diesel pickup. They’re sort of like bad profile photos for social-media sites, but done on black-and-white 35mm film and a decade too early.

    Fish Driver – that’s a new one. What percentage of fish actually made it to people’s aquariums?

    Number 17 would’ve been the perfect album cover: Dark, ominous, Fish Driver. 🙂
