In early 2012, Rich Scramaglia took a leap of faith- he wrote a psychedelic classic rock concept album.   He assembled a storied crew of Bay Area rockers to realize his vision: Mike Drake (Oranger, Hot Fog) played guitar, keys, and produced.  Matt Harris (Posies, Roky Erickson) played drums, tambourine, and produced.  Allan Moon (Imperils, Carlos, Overwhelming Colorfast) played bass. Tom Galbraith (Mensclub, Blank Stares) played drums.  Nick Dumitriu (Turn Me On Dead Man, BIke Revenge Tuesday) played guitar and recorded the sounds. And of course, Rich Scramaglia's (Carlos, Sunless Day) golden voice and classic songwriting are the focal point of this exceptional record. Here's the track list:

SIDE ONE

1  Speak To Me 6:00

2  Laugh At All My Jokes 4:41

3  Sucker Punch 3:06

4  Company Man 3:17 

5  Zephyra The Great 3:16

SIDE TWO

6  Divided 3:11

7  Black Flowers 2:03 

8  Dimmer And Dimmer 2:26

9  Poisoned Wine 3:44

10 Black Flowers (Slight Return) 2:04 

11 Sad Moon Eyes 4:43

Risks and challenges

The risks of this project are minimal: the songs have been written. The songs have been recorded. The artwork has been drawn. Lots of blood, sweat, and beer has been spilled already. We just need that extra few bucks to press records, put them in fancy jackets, get in the van, and play a few shows. If we exceed our funding goals, all extra bucks will go to extending the tour and/or recording a new single for kickstarter benefactors only! Regardless of what happens with this campaign, we will release this album. Thank you very kindly for your support, it means a lot to us.
