Jeff and Susanne Kelly Reviewed in BLURT!

August 7th, 2014

Nice Jeff and Susanne Kelly review in Blurt! “With new facets shining on the same sparkling diamond, the Kellys keep faith with the masculine half’s usual aesthetic, but give By Reckless Moonlight enough of a spin to make it their own.” Michael Toland

Jeff & Susanne Review!

August 5th, 2014

This is Book’s Music takes pen to the subject of By Reckless Moonlight!
If you’re a fan of the Seattle band the Green Pajamas, you should know who Jeff Kelly is. If you’ve been a fan of theirs since the 80′s, you may have heard of an album Jeff did with his then-new wive Susanne called Coffee In Nepal. It has been 27 years since its release and in that time, a lot of music has been made by Jeff, especially in the last year with the Green Pajamas. He decided it would be the perfect time to bring his wife into a new project, almost as a way to see how much time has passed, but also for fans to see how well they are as a unit. The end result is By Reckless Moonlight (Green Monkey), which you could say takes the lighter side of Green Pajamas’ sensitivities and becomes more personal. It’s a chance to hear a perspective that may have been heard differently within a group context, or to understand who some of their songs have been about. The lyrics and music come off like personal diary entries, some of them more poetic than others, but by the end you’ll figure out what the pieces are meant to say, although its honesty is quite obvious. – John Book

FIVE YEARS OF GREEN MONKEY MACH II!

August 4th, 2014

Holy-Moly Sailors -

I just realized it has been five years since we started up GMR Mach II. August 2009 was the release of the Green Monkey Anthology. Thirty releases. Plus another 30 NW artists featured as Album of the Month. Go figure. Thanks to the music lovers, musicians, artists, studio pals, video pals, web-page pals and people in general who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in moving the machine forward. Extra thanks to Vicki. Even more thanks to Howie. And on to the next five we go!

This weekend I begin work in earnest with Mr. Joe Ross on the release of the Green Pajamas’ Happy Halloween. Legendary. Barely released on cassette in 1984. All original tracks master from original cassettes, plus hundreds of era-appropriate previously unreleased bonus tracks. Well maybe not hundreds, but lots. We plan to have it out by October.
