ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
New Age Blues is Michael Horn's comedic musical commentary on such fanciful follies as channeling, etheric sex, health foods, holistic healing, astral travel, visualization, earth changes, and even UFOs, etc. He was first introduced to the New Age movement in 1986 and quickly started to put together tongue-in-cheek songs, and a stand up comedy act, lampooning all of it.

The title song, "New Age Blues", lays bare the perils of plunging headlong into the pursuit of "spiritual" perfection at the expense of one's common sense, friends and sense of humor. "Leave Your Body Here with Me" is Horn's plaintiff cry to a multi-dimensional, spaced out, New Age beauty to just let him get his hot little hands on her...while her consciousness is out roaming the galaxies.

"Family Metaphysical" describes a rather far out family from the eyes of its only not so far out member, while "Life After Debt" may turn out to be quite timely for some time to come. "Spaceship on the White House Lawn" wraps up the whole UFO story, while "Roswell" specifically addresses the historic, and often denied, crash of a UFO in the U.S.

"Earth Changes" gives us a rather bright picture of what would otherwise be simply catastrophic doom and gloom, while "The Man Who Will Not Quit" could rightly be called Horn's autobiographical anthem, or at least one of them.

The listener can thrill to the original (1987) delightfully overproduced tracks, some of which include the Hornettes (i.e. Horn's at the time 12 year-old daughter and two of her friends), as well as to unplugged, solo acoustic versions, which were recorded by international composer and music producer, Tom Batoy.

In addition, there are four of Horn's non-comedic songs sung by other artists, including "No Baby", a strikingly direct and powerful declaration of a woman's sovereignty over her own body, sung by the enigmatic Cat.

Paradoxically, Horn is arguably the preeminent expert on real UFOs, representing the information about the only scientifically proved, still ongoing UFO contact case, the Billy Meier UFO Contacts in Switzerland, in the English speaking world. "The Silent Revolution of Truth" (the title song of the film Horn co-produced on the Meier case) was, in fact, co-written with lyrical input from a young (at the time 12 year-old) extraterrestrial girl, Cladena Aikarina (whose royalties will be held in a special account until she becomes 330 years old).

Where is the modern folk?
One would be impressed by the sound quality. I hope these songs will be more known to the public later on. Hey they are good and they convey the message. 5 stars for the World's most supressed music album ;)
