Too late- the MP3 is gone.
My pal Matt asked me to write some prose for Kelpie's press kit, the first release on Birthday Party Records. Here are a few excerpts from my comments about the young Lawrence, KS, band:
Kelpie's music is intentionally half-baked. In the topsy-turvy alternate world of Kelpie it's possible that the boys abducted Brian Wilson, provided him with a sandbox filled with hallucinogens, and recorded the resulting jam session. While he's not credited on the disc, Sgt. Pepper must have pieced together the ambitious harmonies, delirious lyrics, funhouse piano, and odd drum patterns while blindfolded.
