Maybe when you were younger, you had friends that only liked to get you high. As you got older, you wanted them to do something more - to talk with you more, to be real, to stop acting like a load so much. Maybe now you still have one of those old friends, or maybe someone you met just a couple of years ago. Someone who has obviously seen the saucers, and probably even ridden on one of them. You don't always understand everything they're saying, but you know they'll never lie to you. Once in a while they say something that makes you wonder what they are thinking of, and make you wish you had thought of it first. Someone who brings a big package of ideas over to your living room and let's you unpack it like it was Christmas. This CD is in their bag right now. Notes about the tunes: Being There: The hills are alive the sound of music. Babel/Our Foreign Policy: So much talking, while people suffer. The Chair: Don't let that exterior confuse you. My Next Wife: I never was much good with romantic words. How Spacemen Lose Weight: Even the most seasoned traveler from the farthest reaches knows what it comes down to: chop wood and carry water. Sorry Please: Tomorrow is another chance to do things in a good way. I'm coming home. Kevin Brunkhorst and Paul Tynan: Digital/Spiritual. Six transmissions from a distant place. Produced by circumstance, because we liked it there. Recorded with big sensitive microphones. Spacemen rescued by Shep. Mixed in a wok over an open flame. All digits carefully checked and rechecked. It all added up!
