Album Notes
With the GMA-nominated 'Best Album of the Year' - The Year Of The Two - in hand, A Fish Called Piranha has created a concept album that transcends both time and geography. Meticulously produced by Kwong and several producers including Daniel Elmes (Dan Mangan, Sweatshop Union), Sam Ryan & Dave Badiuk (Krome, Miss Mercury), Mike Plotnikoff (KISS, The Cranberries) and John Shepp (Matthew Good Band, GOB), The Year Of The Two emerges as an extremely potent concoction of Kurt Cobain-esque poetry, 90's grunge, hip-hop, indie-rock, folk-rock and ethereal cinematic pieces. The concept album is about a computer named Bill Gates who later finds out he is the Antichrist. He 'mates' with Charlotte's Website to spawn super-computers and two 'megabots' named Betty and Carrie. The theme of 'TWO' permeates throughout the entire album to symbolize their contrast. But what started all of this was one special song: IT WAS THE WAY YOU SAID GOODBYE. It was one of the latter 'ethereal cinematic pieces' that spawned the whole 'rock opera' double album going. The song was recorded in a friend's basement in Burnaby, BC, Canada. And Kwong had invited his long-time favourite vocalist and friend, Marni Wright, to the session. The result was immediate emotional response - a 'Sarah McLachlan meets Kurt Cobain' explosion... and A ROAR OF BOREALIS was born... it became the prequel to "The Year of the Two" album's journey. Originally recorded as a demo to shop around to record companies, the song 'about a hard relationship gone bad' (one we can all relate to) has never landed any record deal or ever made it onto any album or released out to the world... until now. Enjoy and may a special blessing be poured out to you as you listen... Live long and prosper...
