about

This CD was recorded by Mike Stevens at his place in Hayward, Lost Monkey studio, he also played drums. Andrew Gibson played the bass and I got to play the rest. Cast a Line was recorded/mixed by Matt Boudreau who also played drums, the piano was played by Joe Heavey. Sammy Hagar's producer Bob Daspit mixed it except for A Hail Mary, Mind Control and Let's Really Go mixed by Rick McKay.

PopJunkFluff and Hype was at first going to be a straight up concept album about a Generation x-er who comes back from 20 years of isolation and has to contend with modern technology and the ever widening surveillance state we find ourselves in. Yet, in the end I simplified and stuck with 10 upbeat modern rock-ish tracks similar to a lot of records I grew up on from the late 70's and 80's such as The Kinks, The Cars, Blondie, Talking Heads (to name a few) and let it conceptually be a bit more on the lighter side.

Nevertheless, my own perspectives are woven somewhere within these songs. A generation x-er contending with modern technology and the ever widening surveillance state we find ourselves in, with a severe obligation and belief that creativity is the true coping, healing and problem solving mechanism for a world brimming on the edge of a massive paradigm shift.
