"When a rock fiend morphs into a lonely troubadour, the transition can be unsettling. Thank God Robert Mache was there to facilitate my journey into the Donovan/McGarrigle nebula. Listen, if you dare, to nakedly acoustic 'virgin' songs, folksy-mopesy to the max! Then brave the 'abused' set, where baby's first 4-track is freed into a hissy quagmire of cheap string patches!" -- KH

The Am Fam Variations
Incidental Music From and Inspired by the PBS Video Vérité Documentary Lance Loud - A Death in an American Family. 14 tracks. Released 2002.
Kristian Hoffman met Lance Loud in art class at Santa Barbara High School, and their friendship continued for 35 years. Kristian was with Lance at Carl Bean Hospice on the day Lance left this plane for another. Together they helmed the seminal '70s New York City pop/punk band Mumps, called by Andy Warhol "the best band in New York"! Kristian appeared in several episodes of the original PBS series An American Family. The directors, Alan and Susan Raymond, called upon him to "reimagine" the simplistic Brady Bunch-esque burble of an original instrumental theme, apparently culled at the time by PBS from some copyright-free catalog of canned jingles. Even the Raymonds don't know the original authors! So on this CD we offer no less than twelve startlingly varied, whimsical, satirical, ridiculous, and sometimes beautiful versions of the theme, three of which appear in the documentary, plus two bonus tracks!
