Victor Krummenacher (bassist of Camper Van Beethoven) and Danny Heifetz (drummer of Mr. Bungle,Dieselhed, Secret Chiefs) and I made this album at Coast Recorder in SF with Thom Canova at the helm.

with Guest Ralph Carney (horns) and Jonathan Segel (viola). Mastered by Michael Romanowski. Although recorded in 2001ish, Label relations and contracts failed to materialize into a physical product. We are planning on releasing no later than it's 20th anniversary. And perhaps a brief Left Coast Tour. (who knows Europe and Australia) Because you know about this, you have a digital sneak peak.. And perhaps you can help fund the kick starter campaign to put this out on vinyl. If you are interested, contact me.

Thanks for supporting independent and unfiltered, uncorporate music..

Steve Daubenspeck- guitars, organs, toy pianos, bird recordings and bass on May You Sing

with special guest
eric walker - piano and organ
jonathan segel- lead guitar three notes.. on Wearin' Blue, viola
ralph carney- Horns

about the recordin' session: as usual for me i record albums in 6 days ( 2 days basics, 2 days overdubs, 2 days mixing). Thom Canova recorded and mixed! This album had additional over dubs at my home studio since we recorded to 2" 16 track and I have a MM 1000 16 track at home. So Ralph, Bernal Height neighbor came over for over dubs. Organs ,since I had a few, were done at home by me with the exception on Wunderin (which danny played on hands and knees on foot pedals while Victor was at the gym)

Track Name: Build you a haus
I could build you a house
I will stay there with you
Headin' off to the country
Far away from the big ol' blue
We can burn all the patriot lawns
Cause it's your turn to drive
And no the police won't catch us
we'll wave them, we'll wave them,....

We could wave at the truckers
With the girly mud flaps
And the boys in the 4x's
Stuck in the snow with out rides
