Mr. Jones & The Fascists: In Search Of The Hundredth Monkey (1992)

Recorded live in downtown Los Angeles at the Mary’s Danish rehearsal studio during, and in the aftermath of, the LA uprisings that followed the acquittal of the LAPD officers who beat Rodney King.

Inspired by the 100th Monkey event & action at The Nevada Nuclear Test Site on Western Shoshone land, and my experience shooting “Averill’s Arrival” in Vienna.

Fueled by young love, psychedelics, and that early 1990’s feeling that things were going to get better now that the Cold War was over and a Democrat was headed to the White House.

On our first tour (opening for Clan Dyken, opening for Wavy Gravy on the Nobody For President tour) Heidi Love invented crowd funding, pre-selling copies of the CD to our fans in exchange for a thank you on the record.

I’m still grateful…for all of it.
