This was the last solo release I put out in the '90's before quitting recording and performing music from 2000 - 2010. All the songs began as two track live performances, (no click,) then I overdubbed the drums, bass, electric guitars and Sequential Circuits synthesizer parts. So it may sound like a band record at times, but it was still a total solo affair, an approach I ditched when I started up again with Spare Parts and El Pulpo. I thought of putting it up here because I still like playing some of these songs live today, esp Big Truck, We've Got it All and Knock Out. Jeep Cherokee and I'll Burn are ones people ask for so I do those too. Check out news of upcoming shows and releases at
