Sometimes it takes a while for projects that require hard work, thoughtful preparation, and an occasional nap to present themselves in their final form. "Belmore" is of that ilk.


released November 1, 2016

Alan "el Grande" Grandy recorded these songs in the practice room formerly known as Zombie Proof, in the back studio rehearsal area near the Shoreway, and in his lovely cottage in Euclid, Ohio. He also invested his label knowhow, financed the project, and still managed to play some kickass bass.

John Kalman played drums on these tunes while working every night at a rock club, playing bass, guitar, harpsichord, and pipes of pan in eight different bands, writing and performing his own tunes, and creating various forms of art. Did I mention that he played drums?

Mike Reilly played guitar through at least 152 different fuzz pedals, delays, reverbs, and one pedal that just looked fancy. He also played many guitars one of which was shaped like a "v."

Hans DeKleine mastered these songs from a Beverly Hills bungalow, loving named sound bites dog.

Chris Anderson wrote these tunes and was lucky enough to encourage his good friends to play them with him. He did some singing and played guitar.

Thanks for investing your time in listening to this.
