electric bonsai band recordings

Electric Bonsai Band is actually Andrew Ratshin, member of and principal songwriter for the group Uncle Bonsai, and his acoustic guitar. When this popular Seattle-based trio disbanded in 1989, Andrew began recording and performing, with just his voice and an acoustic guitar, as Electric Bonsai Band.
