Album Notes
sometimes y (1981) formed in 1981 in madison, wisconsin--made a small splash in a small pond in the 1980's. gigs and recordings with REM, Replacements, Tom Verlaine and related resulted in 1984's "one fell swoop" -- produced and recorded at Smart Studios by Butch Vig and featuring Paul Westerberg, Wally Ingram, Steve and Duke from Garbage and numerous other lifers...voted album of the year by the L.A. Times and promoted by everyone from John Peel to Nico.

the band then retreated to raising family and boxes full of home recordings. with over a dozen releases in the box--sometimes y (1981) are releasing "be happy" in the fall of 2003.

"be happy" is the second sometimes y (1981) proper full length release. new songs recorded in 2002-2003 mixed and mastered at Wild Sound in minneapolis. the "y" are joined by long time friend and associate dave stanoch on drums and beyond. a variety of gigs are being planned to support the release of this cd.

the "y" promise that this is album one of three in the next five years...with additional future releases including: an expanded 20 year anniversary release of "one fell swoop" in 2004, volume one of "the loster years" and various related projects from parent company jane bear productions.

keep in touch and enjoy!
