I Feel a Bit Normal Today
...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'! ......
