Jasper - S/T (CD, 1994 Ruckus Records)

David Krueger - Vocals/Violin
Adam Glogauer - Drums/Guitar
Nate Schreiner - Bass
Jason Guyer - Guitar

When Now William called it quits (1993?) the band split into Elgin (Max and Charlie) and Jasper (Adam and David).  I used to go see Jasper quite a lot at John Henry's where they always seemed uniquely out of place. Too moody for a bar band maybe? I think this cd holds up really well, the band was under-appreciated. In addition to Now William and Jasper, David frequently collaborated with Mike Johnson. Adam was in a ton of bands including Frank Booth and the Neighbors, Uncle Charlie, Now William, Jasper, bunny summer, The Cherry Poppin' Daddies and probably a bunch more that I'm forgetting.  Never knew Nate or Jason that well, anyone know where they came from/went to?

  1. Grew up in Bend and went to school in Eugene and I can't thank you enough for this. I've been looking for the Jasper and Kpants CDs forever. If you have Jollymon's Sailing laying around anywhere... that'd be awesome.
