Release Info

Format CD/Digital

Catalog Number DG-82

Release Date April 22, 2014


On Better Than Expected, Stampfel further pushes the envelope, asking the question “How many banjos can play simultaneously without turning into musical slop?” He answers it with a psychedelic sixteen track album that is as beautiful as it is strange. The record also features an updated version of The Fugs’ “CIA Man” as “NSA Man.” Simply put, at 75 years old, Peter has managed to bring us one of the punkest most genuinely non-commercial records we've ever had the chance to release. Fuckin' A man.
