Until recently I've had an odd relationship with my back catalogue. I've discontinued most of my records on a whim, bounced between pseudonyms, and barely ever made anything properly or consistently available. Oh well. These days I have a new perspective on the music I've made - it's been messy, and I'd like to tidy it up a bit.
Over the next year or so I'll be editing, remastering, renaming, and re-releasing selections from my back catalogue. A bunch of it will be available digitally for the first time. And I know a bit about mastering now, so it'll all sound better.
To start things off, we're going back to a record I made when I was 17 years old. I was working the graveyard shift at 7-11, made this in my bedroom. Friends that helped were Cobra Ramone, who sings on track 4 and phones me on track 3; Shawn Everett, driver of the van where I recorded the radio preacher on tracks 2 and 5, you can hear Shawn groaning during the bit on track 5; Mike Gies, the whistler at the end of track 2, you can also hear him yelling behind the bagpipes in track 5; and Dave Politi, who shows up for a moment at the end of track 11.
The video for Prologue is made up of footage from the time during the recording of the album. See more about the record here.
