All Attractions

A new guitar-heavy CD from Camper Van Beethoven multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Segel, extended solos accompanying beautiful and heavy songs. The CD (available from CDBaby, while it lasts,) comes with a bonus disc - Apricot Jam - of instrumental extended rock jams!


housed in a hand screen printed and numbered (edition of only 400!!!) cardboard cover by artist Michael Wertz, this cd contains 11 new songs that feature alot of guitar playing. recorded by Myles Boisen and Jonathan, mixed and mastered by the magnificent Chris Xefos, it's strong and beautiful.

Chaos Butterfly


part improvisation, part twisted songs, very electronic but with violin and voice (and wine glasses) atmospheric but disturbing, avant-garde.

Coming from various musical backgrounds, from Camper Van Beethoven and the Meredith Monk Ensemble to the opera, the orchestra, free improvisation and electronica, to the Cirque du Soleil, they perform here as a duo, using several computers, singing, violins, guitars, wine glasses, and more.

Apricot Jam

After the last basic tracks were recorded for the accompanying CD "All Attractions", John Hanes (drums), Victor Krummenacher (bass), Graham Connah (organ) and Jonathan Segel (guitar) jammed for several hours. These were 6 tracks, which started there, taken home and made into composition out of the improvisation, (which is always super fun.)

Edgy Not Antsy

Pop oddities, kinda like Eno's pop records of the mid-70s but a whole lot more now. or... now.
