about

My longest running musical group before NAIL, "A. Animal" was my seminal Punk Jazz/Prog Rock group. We were together from 1978 - 1982, and again from 1986 - 1994. This record was originally recorded in 1990. Produced by Robert Musso & myself; we never did see eye to eye, and therefore the record doesn't really reflect either of our visions. It sure as hell sounds great tho, as Robert is a fantastic engineer!

Slated for European & Japanese release on Robert's "MuWorks Records" label in the fall of 1990, its release was cancelled because of the original "Gulf War". Of course, 6 months later it was considered out of date, and was shelved. I was heartbroken. I had also spent close to $20,000 on the production. ARGH!!!! Chalk it up to lessons learned.
We continued to perform, until finally breaking up in 1994.

It wasn't until 2003, with new digital audio tools, that I was able to "reconstruct" the CD and re-release it on our label Pdog Records. The sequence of songs has been changed, bringing it at least a tiny bit closer to my vision. And now, through the magic of Bandcamp, I can finally present to you "A. Animal: Overhaul" in all it's glory. As usual, pay what you wish - even zero.

Thanks for listening. :)
