Produced by Brad Jones and Chuck Prophet

Recorded by JJ Weisler, Brad Jones and Jim DeMain at Play Record Play and Closer Studios, San Francisco

(Yep Roc Records, 2007)


Chuck relocated to Nashville and bedded down for a month at the Alex the Great Recording Studios with producer Brad Jones (Yo La Tengo, Dolly Parton, Josh Rouse) manning the desk. Chuck is joined by his own band The Mission Express, Todd Roper (of Cake) on drums, and The Spinto Band. Hell, they even drafted in the local Methodist children's church choir for a few tunes. The album sees him blending his twisted soul-country-rock; a Alex Chilton-meets-Waylon Jennings via Dylan thing, with that Fender Telecaster he's had since his Green On Red days weaving a singular common thread throughout. From the beautiful lyricism and arrangement of "Would You Love Me?", the witty and wicked call-and-response of the title track, to the pure rock and roll ecstasy of "Let's Do Something Wrong" featuring Chuck's well-honed six-string abilities. "We goofed on some agitated single coil cubist junk, got serious with the spring reverb on mournful ballads" says Chuck. P.S. Soap And Water tour program is available here.
