ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Completed days before the release of its widely-publicized single "Walkin' Around Boston", Didn't Planet writes about its first full length CD, "This album is dedicated to the Pilgrim Re-enactment Society. Thank you for booking us; we’re sorry we ruined the moment by requesting electricity. Next time, we’ll be clearer about what makes electric guitars work. And to Sparky the Seal, who found our amps in 12 feet of water off Duxbury Beach, and later wrestled a moray eel to rescue our last Didn’t Planet pen.

"These songs are an homage to cover bands everywhere. We know it ain’t easy. Friends that 'promise to be there on Friday night… REALLY!' bar owners who inexplicably can’t remember who you are after 7 years of booking with them, countless requests for songs you don’t play, and even more countless requests to 'turn down the drums.' Add to that the sheer number of us out there… f cover bands were pigeons, Greater Boston would be Harvard Square at lunchtime. Thousands, identical to the untrained eye, all vying for the same French fries. So when you bring 50 people to your show on Block Island, which is 3 HOURS AWAY and requires a ferry ride and does not offer free parking, don’t be surprised when they refuse to book you again, because they’re confusing
you with the band from the night before, who brought 5 people and parked illegally.

"Your only recourse, naturally, is to write songs about people like that. That’s what we did. A bunch of originals about being in a cover band. And in the process, we turned into an originals band. So there it is. You can play covers, and pull your hair out trying to make money by booking lots of gigs, or you can play originals, and easily book a bunch of gigs that might pay enough for you to square up with the parking meter at the end of the night. Right. We're goin' nowhere."

The band, of course, is going somewhere, now more than ever. Having captured the attention of their hometown of Boston with "Walkin' Around Boston", written as a promotion for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, the band releases its first full length album, a concept album that tells the tales of the bands years as a cover band. With its signature Les Paul sound, clever lyrics and rich harmonies, and peppered with short vignettes that help bring the songs' stories to life, the band has captured the energy and humor of its live act on this studio album.

Pointing-out the ironic, subtle absurdities of life (in & out of bars). A band w
With lyrics that come from somewhere, maybe the heart, damaged ears or hung-over head, this band has wonderfully disjointedly expressed what it's like to joyfully put up w/all the head aches of payin' your dues "if you want to play the blues." It's an album about being in a band. Their sound is kinda straight forward rock'n'roll, which I find refreshing in this time of sounds from unidentifiable instruments. Excellent guitar licks backed by a fine driving rhythm section. But the lead singer's aw-shucks, f-you vocal manner, blurtin' out those A+ lyrics is what pulls it all together. That's right, they seem to have actually written songs AND they have something to say. Somethin' like "I'm having an ok time, but that ass in the corner needs a punch...never mind, who's got the next round?" The content is real, the sound is raw but intelligent & well produced, the message is "every band" if not everyman.
This is a very good record, the strongest tracks are "California", "Bitter" & "Someday I Might"; but I recommend getting the full album as its damn good from start to finish.
