      on the name of your group. My brother in SF loves your type of music, if you ever get up there.

        The origin of the name is convoluted and arcane, suffice it to say we're stuck with it :)

        Our album will be finished soon -- what "soon" means is a mystery, but our preliminary recordings are encouraging.

        One of Johnnie's latest: (if I could, I'd post an audio link but these are unreleased so far and if it somehow ended up on YouTube I'd be in really hot water -- it has a haunting melody that suits the lyrics perfectly)

        "Kansas 1912" - Johnnie Wahl

        Oh, how I love that Kansas breeze
        As it blows across the corn and through the trees
        1911, Kansas seemed like Heaven
        Oh, how I love that Kansas breeze

        The drought of 1912 it gripped the land
        But the people wrote their names in the prairie sand
        When the rain it finally came you know we all still felt the same
        Oh, how we love that Kansas rain

        Oh, the wind blew mean
        And the first thing to go was the stream
        Then the wells, one by one, neighbors on the run
        Oh, the wind blew mean

        Oh, how I love that Kansas rain
        As it blows through the corn and across the plain
        1911, Kansas seemed like Heaven
        Oh, how I love that Kansas rain
