ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The opening track, “While the Night is Young”, begins with Fracasso’s distinctive voice and builds into a raw, howling electric anthem. It’s followed by a pop song, “Eloise”, that runs straight and swift as an arrow, and “Little Lover”, which offers a version of country rock that’s part Rolling Stones and part Bakersfield. “Elizabeth Lee”, a dark tale of betrayal and murder, begins with a lone acoustic guitar and builds into the savage noise of a steel-mill in full production, while the title song, “Saint Monday”, takes an 18th Century expression that meant ‘too hungover to go to work’, and expands it into a shimmering portrait of a man on the edge, seeking a redemption that lies just out of reach. The album also includes “Working Class Hero”, the John Lennon classic, transformed by a dub-reggae rhythm and electric guitars as brutal as the lyrics (an edited, radio-friendly version is also available). Rounding out the recording is the gorgeous pop song “Broken Souvenirs” that tells an epic story of love and loss in two minutes, “Gypsy Moth”, a mystical ballad tinged with highlight rhythms, and lastly, “Another Million” a fragile prayer of a song, recorded in the darkest hours of the night.
