John Chamberlain doesn't want to tell you too much about himself, for fear that you'll make a snap-judgment about him and what his music might be like. But then again, he's afraid if he doesn't tell you anything, you'll decide that there's nothing interesting for him to tell, nothing intriguing that might make you want to explore his music. He's not sure what to do. He agonizes. So he decides to play it straight and admit that he's a clinical psychologist who has been into rock music his whole life. He spent most of his twenties doing various jobs while trying to make it with his Boston/Portland (Maine) band The Common Ground. He bagged it and went to grad school, and now that that's over with, he's got time to do his recordings on the side, by himself, with no one else to answer to. The result is 4-Track Mind, a very ambitious home-studio recording that covers a lot of heavy and funny musical, emotional, and intellectual terrain. Check out the clips, you'll see.
