I have two vivid memories of making this record;

One is me, slowly dragging a huge iron boat anchor across the driveway outside to get a sound effect for one of the songs.

Two, is of the studio toilet, which only flushed sometimes.


The core band on this was The JVA Band: Toki Wolf on bass, and Rick Dallman (RIP) on drums.

Guests included:

Tim Ellis (RIP), Craig Carothers, Nancy Hess, Gregg Williams, Mike Braun, Eric Hill, and Steve Hale. Toki did the artwork and design.

Bicycle Jerry's Virtual Circumcision performed by Tor McAfee-Kingdon at Newton Bard Recording Studio. Portland, OR.

Most sincere thanks to:

Talin Avedekian

Sandy Bodecker (RIP) - What a studio! What a guy! Couldn't have done it without you! Thanks again!

CB Rock - What can I say? You and I should just get it over with and move in together.

Dave Cooper

Brian Elliott - For the bombproof Wurly pedal. I'm forever in your debt.
