ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Frog Bride

1. Dowpower:

New Age music gone terribly insane and wrong. A wall of adrenalin pumped noise nova metal swimming in an eternal sea of crystal meth.

2. Plank Time:

One Planck time is the time it would take a photon travelling at the speed of light to cross a distance equal to one Planck length. Theoretically, this is the smallest time measurement that will ever be possible, roughly 10 to the −43rd power seconds. It might have happened an eternity before the Big Bang. In other words, it can be explained by a human brain--but not absorbed.

3. KC Hall:

A real fine music venue in North Platte, Nebraska during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Many a Montgomery Ward's guitar and Sears Silvertone amp graced the hall. Singers who got the job because they had a mic and a mic stand--even when they had to leave in the middle of the show, with said mic and stand, 'cause their dad demanded that they come home at 10:00 PM. A great place for getting kicked off stage if you played the national anthem of the US of A à la Jimi Hendrix. Ah, the Heartland.

4. The Frog Bride (Not The Frog "Brind", ugh!):

This is a space-metal-like interpretation of Steven Millhauser's horrifying tale, "The Visit." Nightmarish turned up to eleven. A frog bride, jealousy, and empty country roads. Don't even ask.

"Alice had hopped through the dining room and living room and had come to rest in the deep shade of the front porch. It struck me that she kept carefully out of sight of the road."

5. Ice Dance:

Bald, pale, leukemia infested children ice-skating on black ice for eternity.

6. Blues for Cacciato:

Musical impressions of Tim O'Brien's mind blowing collage staged in Vietnam titled "Going After Cacciato." Haunting and disturbing are understatements. Hence, this is not a "traditional" blues piece or form.

"The fog rose.

The quiet was in his head now. It was swollen there, pushing out. It was all in his head."

7. The Gone:

A strange, fading tribe of people known as my old friends. Going, going--gone.

8. Gawd's Plan:

An excuse for evil deeds throughout history. A jazzy kind of smoky cafe beat piece for atheists. "One baby is killed so that another may live." I guess that's what passes for reasoned thought in some circles. Ugh.

9. OT Ugly:

In the Castle of Oblivion, E.J. Orloff needs his right hand man to maintain discipline. OT can only be bested or overpowered by E.J. himself. However, there is one being that can't be killed by either EJ or OT--or anything in the universe, for that matter--Andrew/Andy! A continuing story from the Castle of Oblivion series.

10. Goodbye, Billy-Bob:

Billy-Bob was reared to believe in the Lord Gee-Bus. His Ma and Pa hogtied him and drug him to church every Thursday and Sunday. But Billy-Bob just couldn't square the vile things his Pa did to the animals on the family farm. His father said that he couldn't plant corn anymore, because the teeth scared him. So, in order to "synchronize" his religious beliefs with reality, Billy-Bob decided to travel to Hollywood, California to strangle a hooker in the name of the Lord. He was convinced that he was saving them from eternal damnation. But after Billy-Bob completed his holy mission, he realized that he must put on his special turquoise neon light cowboy boots and take the long, slow, horse ride to Hell. As he rode toward the sunset, he realized it was actually the searing flames of Hades. He was happy, finally.
