Album Notes
Grant Langston's second solo release, Chinese Fire Drill is the follow-up to his 2000 LP All This and Pecan Pie.

Both discs explore his "unique" urbanized, southern boy outlook on women, booze, sex, heartache and modern angst.

But whereas All This and Pecan Pie was a lavish project, using a host of players and participants from established acts like Sheryl Crow and The Wallflowers, Chinese Fire Drill takes a different path.

The irreverence is still there, along with the stories of tough times and tough choices, but the style is more intimate, more personal.

Much of Chinese Fire Drill was done in a project studio in LA's San Fernando Valley, with Grant playing and singing as many of the parts as possible.

"The idea was to take all the technology and try to make a fun, organic record. The approach was very lo-fi. If a truck rumbled by while cutting a vocal and the take was good, I kept it, rumble and all."

Grant's calling card has always been his biting lyrics and Chinese Fire Drill continues the tradition.

Whether waxing romantic about LA's famous strip joint Jumbo's Clown Room or creating a guide for martial bliss("Everyday I take a tab of Ecstacy with my coffee, just so I can smile at you.") Chinese Fire Drill is guaranteed to offend, annoy and entertain.
