Recorded in Ann's bedroom in 1997 using only ukuleles, a xylophone, a recorder, and some random kitchen tools on Ann's TASCAM four-track.
"Anti-guitar and fiercely pro-ukulele, Uketrance are a crew from Seattle who write fun, goofy songs extolling vapor as a savior of the planet and praising Grandmas food over all else. With amplified soprano and baritone ukes, the occasional kiddie xylophone and recorder and some snappy percussion, Uketrance create stunning, retarded songs like "Ants," which is from an ants perspective and includes the chorus, "Stop poking your stick at me!"; and "GI Joe," a song with sweet harmonies about torturing and drowning and blowing up GI Joes, with lyrics like "I buried him naked in the snow" and "Had a parachute failure on GI Joe." Some of the songs are more cutesy than funny, but that seems to go along with the whole grand tradition of ukuleles in popular music."
"Billed as Seattle's hardest working ukulele band, the UkeTrance tribe claims the goddess Uku channels its sound. Beyond Hawaiian serenading and a flapper routine, this tribe of musicians has embraced the ukulele in a modern Ramones-esque style. A plinking and plucking uke lovefest, the 16 track CD, U KenFeelit, surprises and delights with tunes about ants, chickens, and aliens. An homage to the four-string instrument, the package comes chockfull of silliness, including a ukulele chord chart and declarations to release the instrument from pawn shops and attics everywhere."
