Do you remember the song "Dig?" from the very first Dog on Fleas album "Fairly Good Songs for Fairly Good Kids"? It's also on "The Bestest of the Best". Well, that song was a little skit with Dean Jones and Shane Kirsch playing characters that they created, riffing a little bit about things that they "dig" (or like). Actually, Dean played the nerdy character who didn't really get it. Shane said "I dig the saxophone" and Dean said "I dig digging for stuff". WELL, now there is a whole new album of songs with Shane and Dean and the same band that played on "Dig". It's a jazzy spinoff from Dog on Fleas featuring part-time Fleas Ken McGloin, Dean Sharp and Jim Curtin.

Froggins and Bug present their very first album "Dessert Island", 12 songs with a little Sesame Street, a little Cab Calloway, and some Schoolhouse Rock. Shane has obviously never heard about the "desert island list". Instead he has created an alphabetical list of desserts he would like to have. On "Get a Job" Dean asks Shane what he'd like to be when he grows up. Shane replies "I'd like to retire". There is a song about "Literal Red Riding Hood" who doesn't understand metaphor. Trombone, saxophone, upright bass, guitar and drums propel these quirky and joyous songs along. And most of it was recording in one long day at Dean's No Parking Studio. The music is live and spontaneous. Listen and enjoy!
