The Skygreen Leopards present Jehovah Surrender, a six song EP that documents the changing of seasons in a world of whippoorwill moans.

Electric guitar howl like a farmers hound, fuzz bass stampedes, and drums trot and gallop like the finest of wild horses.

Donovan & Glenn write: "Not long ago the band was visiting a friend in Port Costa, California.

After sharing a bottle of wine and enjoying the moonlight dances of his two daughters_the friend wanted to share a secret.

He pulled an oversized key out of his overalls pocket and lead them out back to his shed.

In the shed was an ancient drumset and a cobwebby electric guitar. The man said he knew Arlo Guthrie and that he was once in a band called Hobo Splendor.

Well thats all it took for the Skygreen's to lose their hearts and heads to a new muse.We played All the Young Dudes and Hobo Jesus Blues all night long and the daughters danced ballroom.

This e.p. is inspired by the man from Hobo Splendor_get better my friend!"
