Item Description
Tim Jones, also known as Preacherman and recorded under Midi Man, Ironing Board Band and T.J. Hustler.
He made one very rare lp, and two even rarer CD’s. These tracks are from the CD’s. He was a salesman
for IBM in Las Vegas, where he sold Selectric Typewriters and then word processors during the day and
at night he would perform in the Las Vegas lounges. He was somewhat of an engineer and adapted a
Hammond B3 organ to play a moog synth with some of the organ keys, (some still played the organ),
and he adapted the organ’s foot controlled bass levers to play two Moog synth bass pedals (a failed
item Moog made for a few years.) Thinking he wasn’t much of a live performer he had a wooden puppet
made that he named T.J Hustler, and together with the puppet, he would engage in long philosophical
soliloquies, (some of which are featured on this album).
If you meet Tim, he is not someone who stops talking. In fact he even created a little book called Universal
Philosophy. He has a lot to say about everything. Currently he lives with his 103 year old mother in
Oakland. There he infrequently plays shows on his Casio where he fashions himself a live Karaoke
performer, who comes complete with 5 wireless mics and P.A. and a list of about a 100 songs he can
play. His invented organ contraption and puppet are in storage in Las Vegas, and he seems intensely
uninterested in getting them out, as “The kids these days want to hear the sounds the Casio makes.”
