Album Notes
I've been singing in bands for a pretty long time. I was in a band called "The Hawaiians Band" with Charlie Pastorfield & Corky Schoonover & Bryan Smith & Steve Pentecost & Gray Barbee & Steve Gillies & Tim Strang & some other guys. Then I got in a band called "Captain Tunes & His Fabulous Note Guns". We had some great guys in it over the years: Gibby Dammann, Ralph Dammann, Charlie Pastorfield, Billy Edmonds, Steve Gillies, Bo Randall, John Bohannes, Tommy Detamore, Ellis Hilton. We played more jammy stuff - more Dead, Allman Brothers, Meters, swing jazz & western swing, originals and other stuff. Captain Tunes broke up and I hung out for a while but then I got a band together with Bryan Yates, Gibby Dammann, Bob Otte and Dennis Guinan and BOOM! "The Casuals Featuring Johnny Sportcoat" was born. We were a guitar heavy quartet (2 guitars, bass, drums) doing everything from Eddie Cochran to Nick Lowe to Captain Beefheart with me out front. We made a couple of records and also a 45. But then the band broke up after burning through the original guys as well as Dan Sebring, Sonny Layne, Jep Epstein and Pete Larsen - all great guys. And I kind of stopped doing it for a while but then suddenly WHAM! the urge came back and I had a lot of stuff to write and I really had to get it all out. So I arranged for Charlie, Bryan, Sonny and old pal Craig Dougald to run through some chestnuts and also try to play some originals and that's how I made "Decline And Fall Of John Q Sportcoat". A year later I recorded "It Gets Weirder Every Year" with a bunch of friends. And about 2 years after that I recorded "SunGinChocolate" with a bunch of friends. You can check out my discography and lyrics and maybe other stuff on And that's pretty much my bio. Or what passes for it.
