Hedonistic Rituals of the Unemployed
Just Plain Bill challenges themselves and their listeners with Hedonistic Rituals of the Unemployed. The addition of horns, strings, and other orchestral instruments to their basic guitar, bass, and drums has created a concept album that could have been recorded in the late 60's or early 70's. With quirky, Americana type lyrics that are reminiscent of Ray Davies, but with weirdness like Robyn Hitchcock, Michael Stipe or Wayne Coyne; Just Plain Bill touches on subjects of crime, bulimia, insomnia, and escape. It also includes a rendition of Fancy by The Kinks. More songs are available for download at the Just Plain Bill website. Justplainbillmusic.com.
