[AUDIO version, see also here: VIDEO MP4 version]

On the 25th year anniversary, Loose Bruce Kerr's comedy audio montage of "The Quake of '89" tells the story of the northern California earthquake of that year on October 17th (Bruce's birthday) through rock bands and singers, all of whom are in some way connected to the San Francisco Bay area. The piece received radio airplay in the month following the earthquake and the audio cassette's sales helped raise money for earthquake relief.

Oakland, Marin, the outer East Bay, San Jose, and of course, San Francisco are all represented. Everyone from Tony Bennett to Huey Lewis to the Pointer Sisters to the Grateful Dead to Credence to Janis Joplin to Otis Redding...they're all here to tell the story using snippets of their songs.

Loose Bruce Kerr lived in Mountain View in Silicon Valley in those days. He now resides in northern California's Morgan Hill. After 20 years of performing and writing & recording such pieces, originals, & parodies, he is now back to his original profession and is a lawyer working at Oracle in Santa Clara, CA.

Back in the day, he opened for "Weird Al" Yankovic and his parodies have been played on over 100 of the Dr. Demento Shows.

a few facebook pals requested (yes, I take requests!) I reach back into the video archives for this old song of mine from 1973, and a video we shot on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands around Carnival time of 1981. It's "The Bald Truth," about losing anything yet still winning. Steve Hoeft & I also performed it in our band, Spud City, in the late 1970's but there's no video of that, unfortunately. Here it is, on a warm island night at Sparky's On the Waterfront in 1981.

"THE HOUSEHUSBAND BLUES" is one of "Loose Bruce" Kerr's early solo compositions from 1972-74. In about the summer of either '74 or '75, while returning to his hometown of Waukesha, Wisconsin during his living on the road, he bumped into fellow Waukeshan, guitarist whiz, Bruce Riddeough. The result was both Bruces playing on this tune (Bruce R. on bottleneck guitar). Les Paul's multitrack recording invention had just, and finally, reached consumer level with the TEAC 4 track reel-to-reel recorder, allowing Bruce K. to harmonize with himself, and add drums & bass.

The song deals with the then-current loosening of parents playing traditional, defined roles...at a time when fathers were starting to take on some of the traditional wife's roles in raising kids, including inheriting some of the same downsides that can accompany those duties.
