2010, Asthmatic Kitty / Audio Recon,
Asthmatic Kitty Records and Audio Recon have teamed up to present a collection of remixes celebrating the release of Jookabox's Dead Zone Boys. David "Moose" Adamson's infectious rhythmic style inspired the label to get geographic and see what type of response Dead Zone Boys would draw from some of its top artists in the midwest as well as opposite ends of the country. This free EP contains 10 remixes by midwestern artists Amtrak, Id Obelus, Yeti One, Ligyro, DJ Solly, Whois Louis, Ablerock as well as Brad Dujmovic from LA and Nomar Slevik, based in Freeport, ME.
Amtrak's dubstep version of "Phantom Don't Go" gives the song's playful vocal tracks a swirling wave of synth to swim through while an atmospheric dub beat flows underneath. Indianapolis' own Yeti-One of Twin Monster gives "Don't Go Phantom" a smooth and jazzy backbeat, spooky brass chorus and a free styled hip hop verse of his own. LA Artist/Producer, Brad Dujmovic recorded his own full band version of "Phantom Don't Go", complete with hard rock riffs, classical guitar, grand piano and an epic guitar solo.

2007, Joyful Noise Recordings,
Enter the private, brightly infantile, electrically sanctified world of Grampall Jookabox's idiot-savant folk-rock. Complex choral crescendos, jungle drums, box-car lo-fi, and bubble-gum-acid-pop combine!
2008, Joyful Noise / Asthmatic Kitty,
Ropechain braids holy fear, schizophrenic inspiration, baroque pop-references, and deep, mystical love into a formidable work likely to leave aficionados of "rock-n-roll 2" trapped in an obsessive cycle of listening and re-listening.
