I love that guitar.

Gaston Studio said...

Love the name!

TechnoBabe said...

What a fun adventure this turned out to be. Talent shared online, virtual strangers, music lovers all.

Craig said...

Beautiful cover art, but I'm a married man. . . ;)

Cricket said...

WARNING/DISCLAIMER:

If you think this is genius, thank Jim.

If you think this is insanity, blame me. The fault is mine. But I think On The Corner is a great album, too, and there it is.

Clare Dunn said...

"Garden Weasels of Malice". GREAT name!!! Cover art is nice, too. And the music is, well, unique enough to clash with both.

I vote Insanity...but you knew I would, didn't you?

(thx 4 the good time!)
xoxoxo, cd

The Broad said...

I'm exhausted after that!

Snappy Di said...

It's just as lovely a cover as the Whipped Cream album that Herb Alpert did decades ago. I like it!

I'm gonna stick my neck out and say I think maybe whipped cream tastes better than a guitar.


just sayin'

Daryl said...

Awesome

If I Were God... said...

Great name for the characters in it.
Though we would have also accepted Axis of Weasel
or
Weasel-doers beware!

Chris@Knucklehead! said...

Man, that was amazing. Jim, you're a technological wizard.

Definitely had a funk-70's vibe to it.

Ruth and Glen said...

We enjoyed this as much as the first two. What great talent !

Moannie said...

Ummm! Phew! It's....um...gosh, um..Far too clever for me. Great guitar playing, terrific beat and Ginsberg too.

Think I might know a bit more abut baseball.

Was that Lime? Recognise the hair.

Jeni said...

I'll have to pass at this point in time on listening to your music -need to get through my reader first then, as time allows for more leisurely stuff, I can come back and listen in. Amazing though that you and your online pals can do this stuff though, it really is!

Uncle Skip, said...

Silly me I had Howl confused with this.

Hilary said...

Very cool. Congrats to everyone who participated and especially to you, Jim for the great idea and for putting it all together.

Shrinky said...

Wow, who woulda' thought Cricket had all that in him?? Love the guitar rifts, and as for the artwork, how cool is that? Love the name, too. Great collaboration, well done on pulling it all together, Jim!

Red Hamster said...

I know nothing about music composition, but this is compelling, with a retro vibe, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Clever cover. Amazingly talented group you have there, Suldog. I think you're ready to go on tour, or at least play the local watering holes. Kudos!

Stu said...

James Shawn "Suldog" "Saturday" "Turnip Sandwiches" Sullivan,

An honor it is to have my name associated with such a track. It absolutely blew me into next week.

You, sir, are the way of it.

Buck said...

I'm thinkin' the Garden Weasels of Malice would have been perfectly at home in the Haight. You really need a time machine. A REAL one.

Michelle H. said...

Psychedelic funk. This could mess with someone on a bad acid trip. Not that I would know...

Allen Ginsberg's words fit.

Garden Weasels of Malice - cool name. It has that rabid quality that speaks for the music. It could bite you, and you would go into a rave.

That cover art is awesome!

Uncle Skip, said...

Buck - it was the Fillmore where all of the good bands played... and if the Fillmore was booked they played Winterland.

Oh, wait... you mean the free music in the park, near Kezar.



It appears the link I put up before is inoperable it is supposed to go to:

ok, i gotta say i love the name "garden weasels of malice" but "axis of weasels" sure has a groovy ring to it as well.

very cool to hear crickets voice on this cut along with all the other musicians. what fun and glad i could contribute in some small if non-musical way.

now i wonder if weird al yankovic would let us cover his "weasel stomping day." man, wouldn't that be trippy too?

SpudChick said...

Awesome track, Suldog!!
Although I don't have a musically talented bone in my body, I know a good song when I hear it.
Kudos to all participating artists!!

Barbara Shallue said...

I finally got a chance to listen - wow! It sounds great, but what's best is I can hear all the fun you had doing this. Way to go!

Bill Yates said...

Jim, I hope you can work in the Gopher Guts song on the next project...

Maggie May said...

The picture is good! I still have to listen to that track!

Nuts in May

She Writes said...

That's a sexy shot!

Thanks for the visit. Yup. I closed her up for awhile and reopened.

Buck - it was the Fillmore where all of the good bands played... and if the Fillmore was booked they played Winterland.

I was stationed at Vandenberg AFB from 1964 - 1967 (a mere few hours drive from SFO), Uncle Skip, and attended many a concert at both venues... but never in the park. Almost made it to a Dead show in Golden Gate park once, but duty called and I couldn't swap shifts with anyone. Those were great days... or at least as much of 'em as I can remember. (Cue up Paul Kantner) ;-)
