V-3 was the brainchild of Jim Sheppard. Jim played in the Vertical Slits who were seminal in the creation of the art-rock movement spearheaded by like-minded artists such as The Red Krayola and Pere Ubu. After the Vertical Slits disbanded, Jim began the legacy of V-3. And like fellow Ohioans Guided By Voices, V-3 was making four track recordings of unequal beauty and charm that are sure to make up the 2040 boset of Nuggets from the Garaage. Evil Love Deep features another Ohio hero, Mike Rep, was released at the same time as an equally great V-3 record on Siltbreeze and predates the one on American.
