Album Notes
In 1997 Prozac Rat (South Dakota cousins Noah Daniel Smith: The Greatest Man On Earth and Mr. Dietr) began writing and recording what they thought was rather fun and clever music, sometimes crafting an entire album from scratch in a single weekend. Twelve years, several hundred songs and a Rambo sequel later they have moved to the bustling metropolis of Minneapolis, hired a top notch rhythm section, and finally released their first official album, BIG PALSY.

After the Casio-laden, evangelical title track "Big Palsy Overture" sinks in, Prozac Rat wastes no time in delivering delicious bouncy hook after delicious bouncy hook with "Dearly Beloved."
They then start the party with "Who Invited You?" an assault of a dance beat, with a bridge voted "Most Likely To Appear On The Weather Channel."
Do you know what a "Lust Bank" is? Neither does Prozac Rat. They just hope you enjoy its laid back groove, catchy melody and angklung. After that, "Pigeon Inside" tells the harrowing tale of Donna, who somehow wound up with a pigeon inside her. We don't ask questions. Also, don't ask about "Incidental Spheres," a mixture of goth music, circus music, and a traveling band of greasy, mind-reading horn players.
"Again" is your typical sad country song, except for the jarring, psychedelic violin, build-it-yourself Japanese analog synthesizer, and sampled applause. "The Bakersfield Project is upbeat and bounces as it champions the genetic engineering of a perfect human (and perfect kitty). Prozac Rat brings back the trusty ol' synth/wah/synth/sample/synth combo with "Bald Spot," then slows thing down with "Magic Pony." Beware the beatbox.
They then present what could be mistaken for a love song, "Silver Tongue." Found percussion and Casio CZ-3000 reign supreme. "Do You Know Anything?" brings the album to its much deserved climax, then lets you down gently with "Indigo," a pretty little ukulele ballad about Armageddon.
