Album Notes
Bill Schumann-drums
Jay Hofer-guitars, vocals
Matt Strangwayes-vocals
Uncle Dave-bass, vocals

"Chunky and riff-filled, tinged with boogie"
- Lollipop Magazine

"desperately heavy motherfuckery that straddles arena-grunge and Southern dope-boogie with eazy, greazy grace"
- Classic Rock Magazine

"a jackhammer hailstorm of low-slung riffs and alcohol fueled brutality. Lock up your daughters"
- Kerrang!

"Powertrip-era Monster Magnet, but with more bite and less eye on Vegas schlock"

"Morning. The sun slaps my face like a Bangkok whore, an angry Bangkok whore. 'Let's go Jack, this ain't no Motel 6.' Painfully I open my eyes, only to be greeted with the deceitful vision of the luckless. This is bad. Where the fuck am I?
More voices. They're not American, hell I'm not even sure their human. What happened? It's all a wild blur. The only thing I can remember is that music, that goddamn music..."
Greenhaven was born in Phoenix, AZ in the year of Our Lord, 2001. The culmination of a year long quest to find the ideal band of brigands to bring one man's improbable visions of absurdity and recklessness to life. "I had only two requirements" says vocalist and founder Matt Strangwayes, "that they don't say nothin' to the cops, and that they rock with immeasurable vehemence." Strangwayes had been down this road before, having disbanded his previous outfit, former Pavement Music artists Windigo, only a year earlier. He constructed the bulk of his squad from the still-fresh remains of Phoenix stalwarts Love Not Human.
Drummer Bill Schumann was the perfect mix of Teutonic bombast with a Moonish disregard for etiquette. Jay Hofer seemed to be little more than a glue-burnt hood, but nevertheless possessed the true soul of a guitar hotrod. All that was needed was someone to call down the thunder.
Many rumors had made the rounds about the man known only as "Uncle Dave." Some said he was dead, while others whispered of bizarre addictions and a lecherous past. Most, however, agreed that he was probably little more than a myth. None of that mattered to Strangwayes. For as he sat in that smoke filled cantina he had only one question for the shadowy figure across the table. "Who would win in a fight between The MC5 and Saxon?"
A new era in southwest musical culture had begun.

I am entirely unsure why these cats aren’t giants already.
Here’s a track from Greenhaven’s new-ish album, “The Last Powerful Second”. Coincidentally, they’re also from Arizona. Tucson, to be exact. As the name sorta implies, Greenhaven run mostly with the stoner rock hordes, but they’re actually a lot more dynamic than your average bowlscraper, offering
up some desperately heavy motherfuckery that straddles arena-grunge and Southern dope-boogie with eazy, greazy grace. They’re like the white Danko Jones, or something. I am entirely unsure why these cats aren’t giants already. They certainly sound like mountain-eaters. Maybe it’s got something
to do with all the pot smoking. Anyway, here’s one of my faves from ‘em, “Flunky”. If you dig it, check them out at their website:

Stay rock.
