Product Notes

The album is called "The First Euphoria" because it was my first collection of songs. Each of them was written in the late eighties and very early nineties; an era that, for me, was all about youthful exuberance, inspiration, ridiculous late-teen angst, and the forming of lasting friendships. I think these songs capture those feelings pretty well. The one exception is 'Zero'. The songs needed a new opener that would set the tone. Kevin Stell and I wrote it sometime in the year 2002. The First Euphoria was conceived in a variety of places including the tin shed Kevin and I built behind Mom & Dad's house, Granny-Shed Studio, Big Chick Studio (the abandoned one-room school in Springtown), the closet in Jay's trailer house, and of course, The Mortuary. I've started referring to the sound of these older titles as "Retro-Progressive Pop." And if you heard the original recordings, you'd know they were done using some of the most primitive lo-tech multi-track recording imaginable. (Step #1: Start off by placing a $2 microphone up to a speaker that is playing the drum pattern you recorded. Step #2: Run the mic into a 2nd tape deck while you play a keyboard part to merge with it. Step #3: Put the 2nd tape into the first deck and repeat the process with a third instrument. Presto - You're your own one-man-band.) But I moved forward, figuring that must be how the pros did it, and started composing. I wrote song after song firmly rooted to the influences of the 1970's progressive rock of Kansas, the modern funk of Prince, and the 'whatever' of Saturday morning School House Rock cartoons. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I've enjoyed creating it.
