    My 5th album. Recorded in Wisconsin with Gordon Gano of Violent Femmes, and Mike Kashou one-time bassist with Garbage. A remarkable collection of odd pop classics about a gargoyle girl, the world's worst roommate, Marlon Brando, the blonde John Lennon and other 'characters.' This album features a bit more guitar than usual.

about

Here's not an entirely correct history of my career according to Amazon: Known to many for his contributions to albums by Rod MacDonald, Gideon Freudmann, and others, Kruth was a long-time Greenwich Village denizen who relocated to his native Wisconsin, teamed and hung out with the Violent Femmes, and produced this remarkable collection of odd pop classics about a gargoyle girl, the world's worst roommate, Marlon Brando, the blonde John Lennon and other 'characters.' Guest appearances from Gordon Gano of The Violent Femmes and former Garbage bassist Mike Kashou. Prior to this release Kruth released two critically-acclaimed independently released albums as well as several small humor books.
