about

A mischievous old recording that I'm very proud of. Rafter and I recorded this back in 1995-1997, when both of us lived in Sonoma county. It's very different than anything either of us has recorded since - it's an entirely acoustic collection of purposefully out-of-tune playful instrumental songs, sort of inspired by Americana.

The name of the band was "ampersand", but by the time we finished, we discovered there were lots of other bands with the same name.

It was originally issued on a small edition of cassettes.The mp3 version has 14 songs, including "Kentucky Stomp", which is not on the cassette version.
