Album Notes
Lyricists' Watch is not fooling around.

Lyricists' Watch does not rock for the children.

Transcontinental Drift is a folk-rock, punk-rock, shoegazing concept album. Lyrically and musically it is a road trip across the country, beginning in Washington, DC-- the City the Swamp-- and arriving in Los Angeles with, "my arm in the air with my hand in a fist."

Armed with only a Yamaha acoustic-electric guitar, a Big Muff fuzz distortion pedal, a cheap echo pedal, and a Fender amp, Paul-Newell Reaves recorded Transcontental Drift at Happy Room Studios. Steve Garland was chief audio engeneer, and R. Romero Dey provided percussion backing.

Road Trip album
High marks for continuity. Every song references driving or tripping or traveling. Kodos-- Professor Punk
