Product Notes

...um...let's see...11 tunes, most of them brand new...some of them really ancient (i. e. 'I Lie The Truth' is a tarted-up 1983 Waitresses' demo)...general concept was to write about dysfunctional characters that one might encounter on a daily basis = passing for 'normal'...recorded at my rehearsal studio, in my bedroom, everywhere...production concept was to keep the parts simple, but interlocking and not layered...has a rough demo quality that is more mid-fi than lo-fi...brass on 'Capitalism' orchestrated by Chris D. Butler (no relation)...which leads me to my next project = a CD made with people only named 'Chris Butler'! ...... A QUICKIE BIO - Seminal New Waver, blah blah & etc. Member of Tin Huey in late '70's. Songwriter/producer/guitarist for all Waitresses stuff (including 'Square Pegs' TV show theme and 'Christmas Wrapping'), early '80's. Spent rest of decade producing (Freedy Johnston, Scruffy The Cat, Joan Osbourne) & writing songs in hard-won obscurity, playing drums and doing freelance writing for tech and music mags. Popped back on to the scene with a series of 45's recorded on antique audio gear using Edison wax cylinders, 1940's wire recorders and 1930's home diskcutters. In 1996, released 'The Devil Glitch', a 69-minute song with over 500 verses (1998 Guinness Book of World Records 'World's Longest Pop Song!'). In 1997, released 'I Feel A Bit Normal Today' - a CD of new bent pop. Played drums with Richard Lloyd (Television). In 2001, released 'Un Petit Gouter - The Best of Kilopop!' - a fake 'Best of' from a fake Euro-pop band. In, 2001, released 'Easy Life' (plus a 'alt. Easylife.CD' - an out take CD) - a CD song cycle based on the murder of four students at Kent State University in 1970. In 2002, releases 'The Museum of Me' - a collection of 10-years-worth of audio experiments using antique and obsolete recording gear. Currently collapsed in a corner, and not planning to do a thing unless there is a damn good reason to. June/cb.
