About the album

For my birthday I wanted to give something back to my Indy friends who always wanted me to record versions of these songs after hearing me play them live when I was first starting out. Due to a cascade of unfortunate events, the songs had to be re-recorded and the release postponed. The most disappointing part of this is that I always choose my release dates to mean something in reference to the albums themselves, but I suppose I could just bullshit this as a good date considering it's exactly two months later for the second try... Yep! I'll do just that.

A special shout-out goes to my "biggest fan", Grandma Henkel!

Simpsons reference: None that were planned, but...hmm... Wait, Johnny Cash voices the coyote in Homer's insanity pepper-induced hallucination! Excellent...
