Hi there everybody! Hot off the press are copies of my latest CD ALL-AMERICAN MONGREL BOY (1989-2014). This anthology collects work from the past 25 years and presents a comprehensive overview to the recording history of yours truly. There are 18 songs on the disc with 6 BRAND NEW previously unreleased songs, as well as selections from the Walk Without Me EP (never before available on compact disc), the A Pair Of Opposites EP, and the double LP Cabalistic Dispatch. Three of the songs were written & recorded at the Holiday Music Motel in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
Order your copy right now by clicking on the PAYPAL links below. The cost is $16 US, with SHIPPING INCLUDED to anywhere in the United States. If you are overseas I can figure out the additional shipping costs. If you prefer to pay by personal check or cash you can request copies of the CD by sending your contact information and making checks out to Jon Kanis at PO Box 84653, San Diego, CA 92138. Please allow two-to-three weeks for delivery.
ALSO available are copies of the soundtrack to the original feature length documentary A Box Full Of Rocks: The El Cajon Years of Lester Bangs. I have four tracks on the CD including an inspired remake of Lester’s song “Let It Blurt.” The 15-song disc includes 6 original songs by Thee Dark Ages (the El Cajon band that Lester would frequently jam with), written by and featuring Jerry Raney (of Beat Farmers notoriety). Also included on the disc are contributions by Robert Williams (Captain Beefheart), Jack Gimble, and the Flying Sandolini.
ALSO I still have a limited amount of copies of my 2005 CD Cabalistic Dispatch, recorded and produced with Mike Keneally. This is an epic piece of work that is sequenced like a double LP, comes with deluxe packaging including a 20-page booklet, and over 79 minutes of music. Cabalistic Dispatch is available for $20 US post-paid while supplies last.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT and stay tuned for the publication of my first book in August. It is entitled ENCYCLOPEDIA WALKING: Pop Culture and the Alchemy of Rock ‘n’ Roll. I will keep you posted with the details.
