ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Liam's still a young man. But he's traveled far and wide in the great hobo tradition. Soaking in the world. And then he writes about it. Stories. Songs. Whatever.


Liam's liner notes for Little Savage:

This story concerns a savage. It is based loosely on the story of Victor, the Wild Boy of Aveyron. Victor was a child who, in the late 18th century, was captured in the woods of southern France, clotheless, filthy and generally living like an animal. A doctor from the Institute for Deaf-Mutes took him on as a patient and brought the boy to live with him at home. There he attempted, with less-than-spectacular success, to educate the savage and give him the gift of language. For a time, the boy was big news in France, and the doctor’s diligent note-taking assured Victor’s place in history, and made his case something of a touchstone for psychiatrists and those interested in abnormal realms of human experience.

I’ve taken some sweeping liberties with the story. Surely the Wild Boy of Aveyron was never sold to a celebrity-making impresario, neither did he die any news-making death. But I think I’ve stayed true to the spirit of the story. Though much of the world has changed since the 18th century, we still, thankfully, have savages of a kind living among us, and we don’t yet have any shortage of doctors and pundits deciding what must be done about them.

If I seem to sympathize with the savage at the expense of other characters, who are also only human, well, I can’t help it. I support savages everywhere who simply want to live peacefully with the animals, and have little patience for doctors and businessmen who would meddle harmfully with other people’s lives.
