Album Notes
Richard Haxton's Hawkstown ( is a song universe located in cyberspace.

"Welcome to Hawkstown" is an introduction to the many styles and subjects of songs from the site. Songs about relationships, identity, science, songwriting, the spiritual, the political... Who are these presences that were once the citizens of Hawkstown? They're gone now, but you can still hear their disembodied voices as they sing their stories to you. Some voices are lovable. Some - not so much. Some try to traffic in truth. Some are liars. Some live happily inside their boxes. Some try to examine the walls. Some even try to climb out. Deep, dark, funny, shallow - might rock ya, might shock ya. It's tea time, y'all. Somebody grab the gut bucket! Disclaimer: Any similarities between Hawkstown and your town are purely coincidental.

Some of Richard's songs from his band FUN WITH ANIMALS have been favorites of Weird Al, who called the band "song for song, the greatest group of all time."
