I dreamed of recording a live album at a show – since that proved to be a huge undertaking, we took a page from the playbook of music video directors from the 1980′s and recorded More Songs About Buildings and Cat Food “live without an audience”

“Sgt. Wesman’s Logan Square Friends Band doesn’t satirize The Beatles on its latest release, Sticky Whiskers, but there is a definite 1960s vibe that runs through most of the CD. Led by SGT. WESMAN, this collective creates tripped-out psychedelic rock on songs like ‘Going Nowhere,’ but opts for a classic new-wave approach on the catchy fun of ‘In The Kitchen.’ WESMAN’s studio posse succeeds at a variety of genres, but a cleaner production would have made this effort even more impressive. ” – Terrence Flamm

“Listening to ‘Vultures,’ at first the instrumentation reminded me of Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, a longtime fav band of mine, but then the vox came in and it was like this cool Gang of Four meets Motown kind of thing, and THEN it kept getting even better. A++” –avjones
