‘Bring Me A Monkey’ is the first song G. Stuart Dahlquist wrote immediately following the death of his brother Michael. The lyrics are from a poem by the same name that the family found while they were going through his belongings. The song was recorded live in the studio with Stuart on bass, Troy Swanson on organ and Milky Burgess playing guitar and vocals.

Each copy of this release shows a plate from Goya‘s ‘Los Caprichos’ series. Traditionally, #66.1 to #66.6 has something special. This time an antique slide from the ‘Los Caprichos’ series is framed into wood. Stuart bought these Goya slides at an antique market in Amsterdam some twenty years ago. He always loved Goya and his Caprichos are a real favourite. Goya‘s ‘The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters’, plate 43 of the 80 etchings making up the ‘Los Caprichos’ series, can be seen as the frontispiece of the series. The etching is a self-portrait of Goya asleep amid his drawing tools.
