When the World Was New

When the World Was New

Dean Jones' latest CD "When the World Was New" is full of mystery, absurdity, synthesisers and hooks. Mostly recorded by just little old Dean in his little old straw bale studio, it features 12 songs loosely looking at the evolution of us silly humans. "Would we ever have become the top of the food chain without prehensile grip?" Guest musicians include Shamsi Ruhe, Morgan Taylor (Gustafer Yellowgold), Rachel Loshak, Marianne Tasick (Sweet Clementines), Jeremy Mage, and Eli McNamara.

Dog on Fleas

photo by James Fossett

Dog on Fleas has been performing and recording intelligent, gutsy music for kids and adults since 1999. With 7 CDs of original, inventive music, and a tornado of a live show, the Fleas aim to convert every listener to their brand of loose, energetic music. Watch out for the roving trombone slide, a stunning wardrobe, fancy footwork, irresistible rhythms, and the spirited singing of the Fleas (and you).

NEWS!!!!! Dog on Fleas' founder and instigator Dean Jones won a Grammy for producing the Okee Dokee Brothers brilliant Mississippi Adventure album "Can You Canoe"!!! We're all very excited. Dean has been not only recording all 7 of the Dog on Fleas CDs, but also producing and recording lots of other great music for kids, including Recess Monkey, Elizabeth Mitchell, Grenadilla, Ratboy Jr., Uncle Rock, Story Laurie, with upcoming CDs by Frances England, Charlie Hope, Paul Spring, Key Wilde and Mr. Clarke, and Joanie Leeds. And Dog on Fleas is working on their 8th CD!

Wow. I can't believe the responses so far about our new CD!

We will be keeping the news coming fast these days, because it's a very exciting time for Dog on Fleas. We hope you like the record. Let us know.

Please request songs on your favorite radio station. Bill Childs played a song on Spare the Rock Spoil the Child already: "If You Wanna Dance Say Yeah!" Well do you? Invisible Friends is actually better than The Bestest of the Best! If only we had known we could have called "The Bestest of the Best" "The Next Best Thing". Invisible Friends features 16 songs about magical little people, treehouses, shoes, fish and parties. Special guest appearances by Recess Monkey, Gustafer Yellowgold, Lunch Money, Uncle Rock and more.

Dog on Fleas still has a song on the charts on Sirius/XM's Kids Place Live. Buffalo Gals, which we recorded with Elizabeth Mitchell and Daniel Littleton a few years back, is getting some airplay. It's on our Bestest of the Best CD. You can keep requesting that song, or tell them to play a new one. Whatever you like.

In other news, Dean Jones has been busy in the new NO PARKING STUDIO, producing records for the Okee Dokee Brothers, Story Laurie, Grenadilla, Recess Monkey, and the Deedle Deedle Dees. Check out all that great music on the websites of these fine and lovely folks! Now he is working on a new record for Ratboy Jr. And he did some work on Elizabeth Mitchell's forthcoming CD. And a new surprise CD you will hear about soon.







Please drop us a line and say hi. And ask if we have any shows that aren't listed, because sometimes that happens. And we would most likely love to come to your town if you want us.
