ALAN JENKINS KICKSTARTER PROJECT


a message from Alan Jenkins

Hello,

I would like to take this opportunity to deny that all of the tracks on the Cordelia Records CD "Well, That About Wraps It Up For The Sea" (which is the subject for this kickstarter project) were recorded entirely by myself and not by the bands listed on the cover. Furthermore, I did not invent all of those bands, and the genre "experimental surf music" is not a figment of my imagination. Also the sleeve notes for the CD, however amusing, are not just some preposterous nonsense which is there purely to "put you off the scent".

Thank you for listening.

The kickstarter finishes at the end of this week.

It includes many Cordelia Records compilation CDs at reduced prices (£8 each including UK postage).

Alan Jenkins.

GRANDSHEIKS - PRISONERS

The Grandsheiks play the music of Frank Zappa, and they're pretty damn good at it.
"Prisoners" will bring you a video recording of last year's Grandsheiks Halloween concert.
For me, the gig started with a nice surprise as the band featured Werner Neumann on the guitar.
Werner Neumann is an extraordinary guitar player. He's part of Drei Vom Rhein and also performs with Stefan Hüfner's Zappata project.

The Grandsheiks

  • Daniel Guggenheim: sax, keyboards
  • Jörg 'Doc' Heuser: guitar, vocals
  • Maximilian Hilbrand: lead vocals
  • Christian Majdecki: drums
  • Andi Mertens: bass, vocals
  • Werner Neumann: guitar, vocals

Furthermore, the band was enlarged with The Horny Hornz quartet,
AND with the one and only Napoleon Murphy Brock.

Incredible musicians and a great set of tunes. What else do you need?
An amazing recording.
Superb !
