News & Stuff

Here is a blast from the past on YouTube: The Big Mess Orchestra, led by Andy Bresnan at Penguin Place, Philadelphia, April 17, 1993. Featuring me as Butterfly Fairweather singing "Don't Do This to Me, Baby".

Thanks to everyone who came out to my shows in the midwest for the solo acoustic tour with Samuel Locke Ward as well as my east coast dates with Scott Reynolds (ALL / The Pavers) and Toy Cannons.

The Dead Milkmen issued a new album on October 7, 2014 through our own Quid Ergo label. The album is titled Pretty Music for Pretty People on CD, and Pretty Music for Pretty Special People on vinyl. Distribution is being provided by MVD.

I played harmonica on the popular Samuel Locke-Ward album, Country & Western Funeral which was the October installment of his album-a-month project on Bandcamp.

A tribute album was made in honor of me turning fifty: Now You Are 50 - The Songs Of Joe Jack Talcum

My 2010-recorded, 2011-released split album with Samuel Locke-Ward, Just Add Tears is available now for download from Samuel Locke Ward's Bandcamp!
