Welcome to a new website for an old band.
We started playing together in the day after Christmas, 1980. We were fourteen, and weary of playing cover songs. We were going to start playing our own music, survive high school, and then take over the world. Like most fourteen year olds, we had plans that did not work out exactly as we expected, but like most happy fortysomethings, there’s not a whole lot I would change now, if I had the chance. I’ve seen enough time travel movie to know that “fixing” even one moment from your past could screw up your present.
One thing we did want to change was the way our last record never made its way into the world. On May 21, 2013, Uncle Green finally released Rycopa, 32 songs over 2 CDs that had been recorded for, and then rejected by, Sony Records. Thanks to the good people of Wampus Multimedia, we now have a proper release. We’ve created this website to fill in those just catching up with our neverending story, and to let old and new fans alike know what the band members are up to–individually and collectively, musically and non-musically.
We’ll start those updates soon. In the meantime, the links!
