about

Written on a hilltop farm in Big Sur, on the floor of a dorm room at Lewis and Clark College, and at rest stops up and down I5, then recorded in bedrooms and hallways in Portland, Folsom, and Oakland, this here is Strawberrier music ripe for the listening. From the mouth of the Bard Gregor:

These grave Strawberries lead: hear Folsom’s weep
With singing odes at once the blue-grassy deep.
Dan and his martial train the folk-god bears;
High on his poop the blonde savage appears:
Hounding he seems his crooked friends to sound,
And at the blast of the sax will he dance around.
A hairy Page above the waist he shows;
A double bass beneath his belly grows;
And ends a squeezebox: his breast the bellows divides,
And froth and foam augment what David provides.
Full fifteen songs transport the chosen train
For Pascal’s relief, somersaults refrain.
Now was Folsom forsaken by the fun
Of four scrawny boys; their unsightly faces had run
to the careful Chief, who never closed his ears,
Himself the salsa holds, Nacho Grande appears.
A choir of angels meet him where coinage is ripe,
Holding the dosh and the melody pipe.
But now, angels dispersed, long nights they weep,
And the forsaken Shepherd gazes into the deep.
