Album Notes
Cosmic Garage was written and recorded in the high desert of New Mexico.

Key spent years up in the mountain communities of New Mexico and Colorado way into snowboarding and playing out live in the ski resort towns back when snowboarding was renegade and raw.

The pyschedelic quality of being out in nature infuses the album with spirit and it rocks.

dreamy, cosmic guitar playing
It's an aptly titled album...
it's cosmic..first there's the lyrical content. On "Dream Lizards", for instance, Key sings over an African-sounding melody, "the lizards are coming now, the lizards are walking down your street."
Then there's Key's dreamy, cosmic guitar playing.
The poor guy's probably getting sick of being compared to Hendrix, but that influence is definitely there.
Key is probably best at frantic stomps like the opening cut, "Hand on a Hot Wire."
"I'm alright, I'm alright !" he shouts, as is he's really not sure but he's determined to be alright. "I just put my hand on the hot wire." It's my favorite song on the record...
But Key also does the slow, smokey tunes like a psychedelic shaman. The instrumental "Blue Desert" is a slinky, bluesy gem. It's so easy to space out on it, you might not notice the short pause before the next tune, "Maybe an Outlaw". The two blend together.
The five-minute "Don't fear the Fire" has a Doors-like-midnight-at-the-Filmore quality...
