Brown Bag LP was a debut name by Citizen King released on Don't Records.


They supported this recording with shows in and around their home city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The album has several tracks produced by Speech of Arrested Development fame.[1] The songs are a hybrid brew of funk, punk, hip hop, R&B, jazz, blues, and soul. Local favorites performed during this era at their energetic, kinetic live shows at venues such as Milwaukee's The Rave included "Masquerade," "Beautiful Machine," "Amerekan" and "100 P.S.I." Citizen King's later recordings are a significant departure from the raw style presented on Brown Bag LP.
