Camper Van Beethoven's Jonathan Segel Sets New Album Release
As Jonathan explains about this project, "After my last album, Honey, I really wasn't going to make another rock record. But ultimately I couldn't help myself, and wrote some songs that I think are gonna be great - once we get them all mixed and whatnot. So the whole thing is actually nearly all recorded now. Now comes the hard part: mixing, mastering, putting it all together and getting it to the people that want to hear it. The whole process of doing this stuff, (especially that last part) is getting so weird that I thought this would be the best way [to help, in part, to fund the new record]."
As part of this project Jonathan will not only be releasing the full-length All Attractions studio album, but also a six-track bonus instrumental EP entitled Apricot Jam, an organic collection of improvised jamming between him (guitar), John Hanes (drums), fellow CVB alum Victor Krummenacher (bass) and Graham Connah (Hammond organ). The title is an obvious nod to George Harrison's third LP Apple Jam in the All Things Must Pass set.
Jonathan Segel will also be performing material from All Attractions as part of Camper Van Beethoven & Cracker's 7th Annual CAMPOUT Music Fest at Pappy & Harriet's in Pioneertown, CA on Sep. 16th.
