ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here it is, 14 Songs from Walker, and the group of New Yorkers known as The Brotherhood of the Grape. Walker the former singer/songwriter of the critically acclaimed alternative/rock band Q-south has assembled a beautiful collection of songs.

This is his first release on Into the Whip Records since becoming the only Rock/Soca singer in the world. The music is an amazing combination of passionate vocals and beautiful melodies. It sounds like a soul singer from the 1960's having an argument with the angel and devil perched on Charles Bukowski's shoulders.

Check out the the Christmas classic "Bar-Humbug" and "The One and Lonely" from Walker and the Brotherhood of the Grape on Into the Whip Records!

I am a grape nut!
I first heard Walker sing in 1995 and I still can't figure out why he has not sold 100 million C.D's I feel like he is talking to me when I listen to these songs. I loved Q-South now I am a grape nut.

Can't stop playing it
It's so rare to find a cd that you can play from beginning to end without skipping a single song. With Almost Homeless, I can not only listen to every single track, but I can play it over and over again without ever getting bored. Walker's voice is unique, beautiful and gut-wrenching at times. The lyrics are clever, true and so easy to relate to, you could swear he's singing from your own heart. I love this album like mad.

Thanks to Walker & the Brotherhood of the Grape for getting back to basics & letting us remeber what real & true music is all about. Not another spinoff of a spinoff band just great moving music that tansecnds us to a great place! Thanks

Great Fucking Album
I'm hooked on this CD! It's a Mature sounding Q South. I Can't wait for the new album.

A fadded sight of a new Q-STEALTH
The music on this CD is like Gypsy Kings Mixed with a Lonely Jazz musicians heart and a little bit of ecstacy thrown into a crock pot boiled to perfection. I've been looking for a replacement for Q-SOUTH and i have finally found it. And thanks for all the memories of going to bars and seeing QSOUTH in NYC when i was younger.

As irresistible as a ’97 Napa Cab
Almost Homeless is an engaging first offering from Walker and a cast of South Queens bar band all-stars. Walker and Ed Klinger his primary collaborator have been fixtures on the NY music scene since the formation of their seminal alt-rock band Q-South in the 90’s. This disc reveals a more mature writing style which manages to be comforting and edgy at the same time. The lyrics weave a tapestry of love, loss, hope, and hate. The melodies are engaging, with harmonies on several tunes that would make Lennon and McCartney proud. The fourth cut “What Went Wrong” has a 60’s soul pop hook that is so infectious you’ll find yourself humming it in the shower. “Vacilador” (Steinbeck reference??) is an upbeat pop tune that will keep your feet tapping. “What About Now” paints lyrical visions not unlike a Hemmingway novel. It’s been a while since I’ve encountered a CD that never seems to get tired. Almost Homeless has broken the one hit disc trend of recent pop music. It’s thoroughly enjoyable from the moment you draw the cork, until its crisp finish. Do yourself a favor, and pick up this disc, it will not disappoint.

Australia.....Brotherhood
"The brotherhood of the grape! You see them in every village, these old rascals, loafing outside the cafes, drinking wine and sighing after every passing skirt."

i go coo coo go nuts, for walker's stuffs
like, oh my gosh, this cd is flippin radical beyond all recognition of the actual meaning of radical...i love walker's voice and stylings, he is almost as good as me!lol..j/k..i love this band and the whole concept behind them..they truly are musical wizards that can be fun or fractionally obscure..one love..more fire for dem buwoys..light it up and sit back and conjure up some maniacal thoughts about the friction of heart and soul, that lies beneath the understructure of the rudiments of this band....go nuts!!!!
