This is a rare gem, recently recovered from CSATFCWB's archive: a scanned copy of Joseph's original resignation letter. This was sent 2 days after their final concert in Kramer, ND on July 15th, 1991. Though Joseph cites "artistic differences" as his primary reason for leaving the group, it appears that his anger was sparked by a botched four-way with a girl (whose name has been blacked-out for her protection, along with other names and questionable words) wherein Jeremy and Dr. M hogged all of the good parts.
You may recall that Joseph did record one solo record in late 1991 (succinctly titled Clark Schpiell And The Furry Cockroaches Without Butts Can Kiss My Ass), followed by a duet album in 1992, Kirk and Me, with William Shatner. To this day, Shatner insists that he was tricked into making the album, which he feels was far below the standards of his earlier the Transformed Man. According to Shatner, he was so high on LSD and bad lutefisk during the time the album was recorded, he thought Joseph was Leonard Nimoy and that they were rehearsing for Star Trek V.
