Parks & Recreation

post archive





Parks and Recreation was born out of Michael Johnson’s solo project, Reclinerland when in 2005 the band swelled to a five piece, justifying, even calling for a name change. Michael, together with Anthony Georgis (American Girls), Jason Hughes (Periscope), Joe Ballman (Nordic) and Bob Ham (Rally Boy) have forged an undeniably entertaining live combo. What Was She Doing On The Shore That Night? — recorded with Adam Selzer at Portland’s Type Foundry Studios (The Decemberists, M Ward, Norfolk and Western, Blanket Music) — is their debut, bridging the transition from songwriter to tightly knit band.
