For our last day in Colorado we decided to hike up to Inspiration Point, an 11,200 foot mountain on the outskirts of Creede. Once we got up there, we caught our breath and blasted some brass band music over the entire town. Colorado is a beautiful and wonderful place. We are sad to be leaving but we will definitely be back. Thank you Colorado!

Little A Cappella snippet Me & Big Charlie did of “My Tiny Little Friend & I”, a track from our 3rd upcoming album, Volume Two.
The song is 7 minutes in length, chronicling the adventures of a man & his tiny little friend as they go to the carnival, he looses his tiny little friend, and the man must then rescue him from the dark underbelly of the circus, fighting off gin-drunk big top mamas and monocled assassins in a dark, dark world, tiered with rabbit holes and strange colorful pathways of light, ducking bullets and hungry acid-riddled chimeras. Will they escape? Or be lost forever? The song features the Craft Brothers (Jack & Sam) and Booty Trove Brass Band. It is our mother fucking Bohemian Rhapsody. Look for it late this March 2011.
Spent all weekend in the studio finishing the last session of tracking for Volume II, due late this March 2011. Now all we have left are overdubs, mixing, mastering, and then we give it to you!
Charlie & I finally set the track listing in stone. Check it out:
