So much left out....
1 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Weber's not the total fool he appears here (though he apparently loves to play one), nor is Stampfel more dedicated musically. Weber's played music daily all these years, and probably doesn't need all THAT much rehearsal because of it....

Residents of Portland Oregon were lucky enough to experience some 20 YEARS of continuous playing by Weber and Jeffrey Frederick, fronting identical bands known as the HOLY MODAL ROUNDERS and THE CLAMTONES.

I would refer interested parties to The Freakmountain Ramblers for a currently working manifestation of this band. Also on the Freakmountain site, there is a Jeffrey Fredericks link with some newly issued old material well worth hearing.
