Ooh La La is something new under the sun: a novel about rock and roll that comes on a CD-ROM with a soundtrack that plays while you read the text.

I wrote the story with the help of my friends Matt Wilson and John Munson, who have played in classic Minneapolis bands such as Trip Shakespeare, Semisonic, The New Standards, and The Twilight Hours.

Then I chose 12 of Matt's songs and 2 covers, which the two of them recorded live as an acoustic duo in the bars of Minneapolis, giving us our soundtrack.

If that weren't enough, we threw in original photography and a music video, plus an audio CD so that you can play the music in your car or on your Hi Fi.
