Uncle Neptune's old timey ditties have been affectionaly described as a cross between Kermit the Frog and Tiny Tim. After a long 7 year absence from the web, Happy Puppy Records is re-issuing the first Uncle Neptune album with the permission of the Uncle Neptune estate, with further albums in the catalog to come.
After releasing his first album in 2001, Uncle Neptune received some notable national attention thanks to Richardson's Roundup on CBC Radio One. Then in 2005 the world found out about the wonderful music thanks to a mention on the popular site Boing Boing.
Uncle Neptune retired from the internet in 2006, never to be heard from since. We thought this was a terrible shame that nearly a generation of internet users never got to hear any of his delightful and timeless songs (save for one track appearing on a Kazoomzoom compilation).
But recently Lee Rosevere at Happy Puppy tracked down sources close to Uncle Neptune (thanks Billyblob!) and we are preparing to release as much as Neptune's music as possible, beginning with his debut album.
Please enjoy this music and share it with your friends, and if you do, it would make the world a better place if you would visit Jamie Ward's bandcamp page and support him and his current projects, and it would make Uncle Neptune very happy.

I'm going to be honest, I am currently listening to Stray Dogg's music for the fourth time in a row. It reminds me a bit of being a sad teenager, dreaming of love, longing, and train rides. It sounds calm, relaxed, like I am moving slowly through a landscape of birch trees losing their leaves, as if the world is slowly passing me by in the most beautiful way but I am standing still.
With only nine songs on FMA I think you should listen to them. I have been sitting here in my living room with Dukat Stray's voice rolling around in my head. He makes me want to get up and walk, find a friend, and take them on an adventure to the sparse forest.
Listen to them when you are nostalgic about a lost love.
Listen when you are on a train ride leaving a place you want to be but you cannot stay.
Listen while the sun is setting and you are alone on a downtown rooftop you have someone managed to clambour onto.
