11. nude beach - this was the 4-piece line-up (amy joined us on drums and singing) at a beautiful little theater in san francisco called the climate theater, i think they usually hosted theater events and plays. it was small and cosy and the audience was filled with friends. this song was made up as a present to david wilson and frank lyon of the art/music group, ribbons. they were putting on concerts in the forest, up hills, and in abandoned tunnels around the bay area and we became fast friends and kindred spirits. i really liked the way we played this song together as a band and i loved playing music with my friends.
