Junco Partner

Here’s one from the archives:

Junco Partner by the Freshmakers featuring King Django and Dr. Ring Ding

It came out on a Joe Strummer tribute record released in Italy in 2005(ish).


The track was recorded in the studio under Jammyland (60 East 3rd Street, NYC).  I think the group – called the Freshmakers – included me (banjo and bamboo sax), Bob Timm (rumba box), Jay Nugent (guitar), King Django and Dr. Ring Ding (v0x) and another guitarist, whose name I can’t remember at the moment.  Vic Rice engineered.  I’m pretty sure that this happened in December 2003/January 2004; the band laid the instrumental tracks down one afternoon, and Django and Ring Ding came in a few nights later and did the vocals during a snowstorm.

The people who released it said they’d send me a copy of the CD and a t-shirt in exchange for the track.  Perhaps needless to say, that never happened.
