Taking it's name from a mass mind-control concept from the cult sci-fi novel 'Illuminatus!', The Fnords is the brainchild of one Matthew L. Gordon, a bemused, lapsed classical singer trying to make up for lost time. Born In San Antonio, Texas and raised near Columbus, Indiana, Gordon presents a snapshot of his talents and vision as captured during a brief allotment of studio time on luxurious two-inch analog tape. This 5-song EP is resplendent with tales of odd childhood experiences, pop culture glitterati and surreal presidential dinners rendered in Bowie-esque vocal histrionics and beset by guitar, Rhodes piano and the occasional thunder of synthesizers and swirling Hammond organ. The songs here were recorded in the summer of 1999 and kept out of circulation until sufficient passage of time deemed it proper to release them to the public.
