Joey Arkenstat is to the world of music what Austin Powers is to the spy game: an international man of mystery. Among those in the know, Arkenstat is a bonafide bass-playing legend. No less an authority than Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers) has stated, "I spent a lot of time listening to Joey in my formative years." Me'Shell Ndegeocello admits to having studied Arkenstat's instructional video. The list goes on. At the urging of producer Mike Gordon, ropeadope decided to release Joey's long-awaited debut - a bass players fantasy. By now, the secret is out, Joey Arkenstat is really Mike Gordon (of Phish).Warning: this is some crazy shit.
