NXNW 18 - Sam Fisher - More Whine

Hello fellow-travelers on spaceship Earth (currently headed for disaster),

We are pleased as a punch aimed at a zombie's head to announce NXNW 18:

Sam Fisher - More Whine was a labor of lurve recorded by Yarn F. Miners that can be downloaded or purchased here.

Mixed and mastered by the masterful and humble Robert Bartleson at Haywire in SE PDX.

Cover photo by Keri Hughes.  Layout by Jeff Wester.

Sam sang, played acoustic and electric guitars, clapped, snapped, stomped, whistled, played the organ and wrote the songs (except for The Harder They Come by Jimmy Cliff).

Chris Murra played lead acoustic and electric guitars and sang.

Yarn played electric and upright basses, piano, harmonica, mandolin and sang.

Marshall McAlpine played drums on Well of Shame & Stay Awhile.

Rebecca Wood played viola and sang on The Harder They Come and It's the Climate.

Vince Furrillo played pedal steel on What's Left?

Davey Death Ray sang all over the place.

Ekatrina Sotomayor sang on Listen, Repeat, The Harder They Come, It's the Climate and the "jingle."

Roscoe barked.

Sam says hugs and love to one and all.  

Also, a super special thanks to Ferris Fisher without whom none of this would have been realized.
