Have a great 2016! Cheers!!! Success!!!
The latest track (Theme for a Dog/Self Authority) is a metaphor for doing what I want in the face of normalcy and mediocrity. I use the image of a deranged, kamakazi-style Dog bringing hellfire down upon snotty-little precociously dressed children, who upon running home for safety, find their mother's unsympathetic and distrustful of their claims of plight. As always, there is an element of tongue-in-cheek humor.
"AS THINGS ARE...AS THINGS CHANGE" is a track I have had for years, and an early example of trying to engineer sound. Thus, the one recording I have has been worked until the noise was reduced to a ?listenable? level. The style was inspired by classic industrial "Wax Trax"/Revolting Cocks/Skinny Puppy-sound. Lyrically it is basically saying, "Once you've seen Hell and survived, bums can bring whatever B.S. and I don't mind because I will overcome it."
Dropping in to listen again. :)
"DOWN AFTER DARK" was originally going to be a Volum Ovo song, and we ran through it with a different arrangement, but it never came to fruition. It's basically a party song. Seeing that attractive person across the room who is either really shy or a little too self-absorbed, and playing it cool by meeting them on their terms, which often times are on shakey ground to begin with. A little Love and smartmouthing thrown in there as always.
"PEELED OUT" is another 2015 release. This track is basically a nod to the working class, and hard working people who are trying to keep a good humor/childlike outlook in a world seemingly designed to pigeonhole non-conformists, rebels, and those of us who admit our vices. I'm happy with the production quality of this one. "Peeled Out" is NOT a clever play on words to describe being on pills. I do not openly encourage drug use.
"CRUELTY TO SIGNS" is a recent release, and is currently my favorite track. The lyrical concept came to me one afternoon while driving through urban Tulsa, and being appalled by the sheer number of billboards polluting the landscape. The "ghouls" mentioned refer to a top 40 radio station's billboard depicting an array of modern pop "divas" who looked half dead and like junkies. Note also the rastafarian references that I occasionally include in my lyrics. I listen to this song and imagine a sociopathic comic book villian setting fire to public advertisements that are tasteless and lewd.
