Ol' George, the Appalachian banjo wizard, once played guitar and sung songs in some band called Federal Duck. Then after some kind of epiphany he went and recorded this strange beast...an album of 'Occult Improvisational Compositions for 5 - string banjo and percussion'.

01 Winter Doldrums
02 Finland Station 03 My Favorite Thing
05 Cold Spring
