"The Ampersands deserve to be huge. If merit equals reward, then they will be. This is lovingly crafted, questing pop-rock which ought to garner a large and loyal fan-base."
HAPPY TO BE HERE
(honestly just a month or two in total when you count it all up, but scattered very sparsely over the course of nine years)
... in the making!
Will the prognosticator's dire prediction come true? Will the pigeon ever leave its town? Can one truly rage until they feel? Has the therapist who specializes in obscure references discovered the secret? What is happening outside of those four walls?
...In Happy to Be Here by The Ampersands!
A Garage Rock Classic!
The album that started it all!
The Ampersands' first full-length album (and the only one recorded before the departure of drummer Corinne Gonzalez) made its way into the history books when the song Winterspring was ranked #671 on Kiss Out The Jams' "top 1000 songs of the 2000s," (just ahead of Wussy's This Will Not End Well and Chamillionaire feat. Krayzie Bone's Ridin')
