A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THIS ALBUM:
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, 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:
Sandy Bodecker - 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.
Brian Elliott - For the bombproof Wurly pedal. I'm forever in your debt.
