It’s been a hot week in Seattle and I’m anxious to get back outdoors!

Jeff Fielder’s Last Disguise

Finally, after over a year of playing Jeff Fielder’s music on the CrapMonkey Podcast, I now have a website to point you to and an album to reference.  Jeff Fielder’s new CD, Last Disguise is hot off the presses and soon to be available in the Seattle area as well as in online outlets like and Itunes.  The CD consists of ten tracks (including two covers) that come to together to form a showcase of truly superb songwriting and musicianship.  Likewise, the accompaniment of musicians like Jason Staczek, Zach Harjo, Myles Corbin, Mike Stone, Mike Musburger, Derek Brown, Darren Loucas, Ivo Nakov, and Kristen Ward make this a must have album!

Crapmonkey Podcast – Back Episodes

Prior to Spring of 2006, the Crapmonkey Podcast didn’t have an actual corresponding blog. In those early days, I actually updated my Podcast RSS feed manually in Notepad each time I created an episode. As such, the Crapmonkey Blog doesn’t align with the Crapmonkey episodes as you travel back from this date. However, the video player below contains all of the previous podcast episodes. If you wish to go back to the very beginning, just click on “More Episodes” in the player below.
