Product Notes

Big People Shoes "Every town plays the same record - just a different sleeve" sings Emily Olson in perhaps her most perfect summary of the stories told in The Blue Mollies debut album, Big People Shoes. This is more than just a record by one of the Twin Cities' best new bands, this is a record of life experience - experiences that we all reflect upon late in the evening when the sun has gone down and all that is left is the settling in of personal reflection about family, day to day struggles, death, and ultimately the longing for happiness that we all can achieve. Big Peoples Shoes is a journey through tragedy, self-destruction, relationships good and bad, wanton debauchery, and personal evaluation. The album champions The Blue Mollies' combination of their influences (Aimee Mann, Wilco, Neil Young, Lucinda Williams, etc...) with their individual backgrounds (from Twin Cities bands The Bottlehouse, Hookhead, The Camdens, Tremorphlo, and The Rakes) in a sound that is equal parts scrappy rock and roll, boot-slappin' country, and sonic experimentation. Working on the album through the winter months of 2005-06 in Minneapolis - an annual period of stoic reflection imbedded in the Midwest culture - Big People Shoes was the collaboration of the The Blue Mollies as veterans of their own devices. Recorded in the band's rehearsal studio and at the home of Emily Olson and Steve Dupuis by the band's former bassist Aaron Pruitt, the Blue Mollies' powerful debut is a collaboration of like minded musical miscreants all with a shared vision, to communicate through honest music and to learn how to walk in these Big People Shoes.
