Shaped from former members of Yo La Tengo, The Human Switchboard and Peter Stanfel's Bottlecaps, The Schramms have been a Hoboken and New York fixture since 1985. Finding a place in the sun both in the U.S. and in Europe, they have become one of rock's most respected and talented bands. Dave Schramm can also be heard as a featured guitarist on current works by Richard Buckner, Freedy Johnston, Soul Asylum, The Replacements and Whiskeytown. This Album establishes the depth and sophistication of these veteran song crafters. This time, they've enlisted J.D. Foster to produce. This release is tight, and precise. The songs belong together and make for a flowing, detailed and intriguing work - like a book you cannot put down. The band is joined by such luminaries as Richard Buckner, Syd Straw and Jeb Loy Nichols who all share in the vocals and the atmosphere.
