"Richard Leo Johnson's style is marked by emotional depth, complexity and hauntingly unfamiliar harmonies. Percussionist Gregg Bendian is the leader of The Mahavishnu Project and Interzone and has performed and recorded with Pat Metheny, Nels Cline, Cecil Taylor, Jan Hammer, Derek Bailey and Zoot Horn Rollo among many others. Johnson and Bendian work with 'junk' percussion, cheap guitars purchased off eBay, field recordings and simple tape effects to make a kaleidoscopic, down-home psychedelic experience. This record is an extension of the music and the story of Vernon McAlister and his influence on the people he encountered, which started on Richard's hugely acclaimed last record, "The Legend of Vernon McAlister"."-Cuneiform
