about

We'll Always Have Fresno is my 1st effort as an engineer, and took 50 years to make. I played all of the instruments, and the whole thing was fraught with computer melt downs and near suicide inducing technical tragedy.
I had the help of the best and smartest engineers I know, Polymorph Studios' Mark Stichman and Dan Rathbun (of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum fame) with Frank Giordano filling in on Mac expert repair. The Project itself took over 4 years, with a learning curve that seemed insurmountable. I am extremely proud of this work, it's the biggest thing I've ever done. It sounds stunning, and the performances surprise me. It's full of captured magic moments- I can't believe I really did this. I really want to share this with the world, and as the CD plays, rather than chopped up as singles and consumed like Doritos.

about

Brian Kenney Fresno Fresno, California

My name is Brian Kenney Fresno, and I have this super fun solo ROCK show
where I sing modern TALES of urban legends and epics of the absurd- in a
sing along format, mostly about Fresno Ca, my home town, and everytime I say
"Fresno", everybody eats the raisins and says "WHOOO!" in a group
experience.
It's really fun!
Everybody laughs a lot!

Track Name: Porno Dan
Porno Dan, we salute you
when they robbed you last fall I'm glad they didn't shoot you
your product fills a need, it helps me spill my seed
that's why Porno Dan , we salute you.

Porno Dan, we salute you
when the bandit's gun misfired
we all thought that you had retired
your porno racks are overflowing
guess that's why I'm always going to-
Porno Dan, we salute you
Track Name: Fresno
Fresno
“Be World Class, Be Fresno!”
was recently floated as the new city motto
but it showed the agents of reality
had been incommunicado
though never ever meant to be made public
NO it was only to encourage positive thinking
but I’ve lived in this town for 42 years
and I can’t imagine what they were smoking

Land of the Chupacabra
Homeland of Bobby Salazar
Birthplace of Alvin And The Chipmunks
Reluctant hot bed of crank heads stealing cars

Some times it just does’nt get any better folks
Other times it couldn’t get any worse
Living your life in Fresno can be both a blessing and a terrible thing

So come to Fresno
Go To Fresno
A culture of excellence where everyone gets the best every day
come to Fresno
Go To Fresno
Apart from truth and perception perfection in every way

Stomping grounds of William Saroyan
Who would’nt pick up his Pulitzer Prize
Said “Writing’s what I do”
Ongoing home of Brian Kenney Fresno
The under-rated genius that towers over all of you

Now don’t get me started on the gang warfare
Or the way we beat, I mean treat the homeless it’s so unfair
We used to be the intravenous drug capitol of the nation
But now it seems like no one cares

So come to Fresno
Go To Fresno
A culture of excellence where everyone gets the best every day
come to Fresno
Go To Fresno
Apart from truth and perception perfection in every way

From the sprawl of the north-east expansion
To Chateau de Fresno out by Kearney Mansion
It’s a semi-tropical paradise of grape vines and fruit trees
That few of us ever sees
And the orchards seem so endless and the soy sways in the sun
You can dump your meth lab chemicals while Shy Girl shoots her gun

At the psychedelic patterns that form out in the fields
As you fly past the junk heaps that line Highway 99

It’s where the city banks development that turns to urban blight
It’s where the police chief runs the whole show
And shuts the town down at night

Gateway to the scenic Southern Sierra
On the banks of the once mighty San Joaquin
It’s a cornucopia of agricultural splendor
The likes of which the world has never seen

So seductive in the springtime
Fantastic in the fall
It’s where rural life meets suburbia with a cow pasture and a mall
Highways that led to nowhere now infected with urban sprawl
It’s where the red necks meet the yuppies
And Jesus Christ rules them all

…and it gets really hot

Though we love to chide and deride you
Your charms are many and in-explicable
Just like the way people lump us in with Bakersfield
Is so annoying as the comparison’s inapplicable

Life is a lot like what you make it
Does’nt really matter where you live
What’s important is what you have to offer
And to offer all you can give

So come to Fresno
Go To Fresno
A culture of excellence where everyone gets the best every day
come to Fresno
Go To Fresno
