There are very few copies left of Desert Wasn’t Welcome LP, recorded audio vérité by Bob Schwenkler at Dub Narcotic in May, 2011, and released by Off Tempo the same year. This is a shimmeringly accurate document of the French Quarter band that existed from 2008 - 2011 featuring Chase Kamp on Drums, Preston Bryant on bass, Stephen Steinbrink on voice and guitar, and Andrew Dorsett on keys.
