Notes

I guess the curse of the digital age is that everyone can record their "masterpiece" in their bedroom, far from any reality based critiques from other musicians or pesky engineers. That is definitely what I set out to do with, "The Wind Is Falling In Love." The concept is laid out in the song, "Our Little Place," in which I envisioned a very weary idealist giving a speech at a fundraising dinner. It seems he runs rehab/therapy center and is pitching the crowd for donations by revealing histories various patients. The record was then to go on and tell the personal tale of 13 of the residents and how they related to philosophy, religion and and the price of sour cream. Without anyone to tell me to shut up and play my guitar, I was free to roam the halls of social commentary, rock opera and 512 on-board audio effects.
A lot of the songs I'd had laying around unfinished for quite some time and they were quite a nightmarish ugly little bunch indeed.
We've got a long-term tweaker/S&M hooker in "Maggie" who lost her kids and never quite mastered simple intimacy. The troubled but ecstatic spiritual visionary in "God," who unfortunately is sworn to secrecy about his revelations, Threre's the ever-present trust-fund-kid imprisoned in his luxurious lifestyle in "My Cage," Manipulation of the simple folk by a cultish Dr. Woodenhead in "Sad Animal Stories. Total and complete realization of the genetic/physical nature of most deep rooted problems in "Teenage Acne," Cathartic breakthroughs of existential meaninglessness in "Pieces of a Dream." Wrapping it all up is "1974," where the narrator realizes that the world was actually destroyed in a nuclear war in 1974 and we are living on shared imagination alone. Kinda smack dab in-between the Matrix and Anthony Robins. "The Wind" can offer no real answers, and what happens when the wind does fall in love ?
it probably looks a lot like a tornado.

So here it is, not a masterpiece. But it is finished, and I did it all in my bedroom. Played, recorded, engineered, cover art, printing even assembly. DIY dammit. If you listen to nothing else, please check out the slide guitar in. "Pieces of a Dream" My first time on slide and a total first take, its the most psychotically beautiful thing you'll ever hear.
