ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Parallax Project was supposed to be a loosely organized, shifting collection of musicians. That's what founding member Michael Giblin envisioned when he set out to create his first solo album, 2002's "Oblivious", but where you're headed and where you end up are often two different things. In assembling a band to promote the album, he ended up with a crack live unit that drew upon a collective love of 60s Mod, 70's new wave, and Elvis (the skinny, mousy British one). Over the course of the next few years, the band honed its edge and flaunted its love of the Ray Davies songbook, the result of which was the band's 2nd album, "Perpetual Limbo".

Produced by Don Dixon, their third full length release (and Kool Kat debut) "I Hate Girls", now flaunts the fruits of Michael's time spent touring, hanging, and recording with The Plimsouls and Magic Christian! And Plimsouls-inspired it certainly is throughout - see songs like "All The Same" and "Coming Around" for proof! But there's also much more going on here. Imagine if Difford and Tillbrook of Squeeze got together with Ronnie Lane of the Faces to write a song - you'd probably wind up with "The Day After Tomorrow"! The crunchy guitar-lead "Waiting To Pull The Trigger" features some very cool Difford/Tillbrook-like dual lead vocals. In fact, one fan was overheard to say "It sounds like Difford and Tillbrook fronting the Smithereens!" The title track has some Faces swagger with some tasty Ian McLagan-like electric piano during the outro. All capped off with a very cool cover of The Velvelettes' "Needle In A Haystack".

In addition to the original material on I Hate Girls, the band has also released a bonus companion album of cover songs that have been recorded over the span of their 7 year career. Entitled Sleeping with the Enemy, it contains songs by The Who, The Kinks, ELO, XTC, The Velvet Underground, The Faces, Dr. Feelgood, et al, and features guest appearances by underground rock legend Cyril Jordan (The Flamin’ Groovies) and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member Clem Burke (Blondie). Each physical copy of "I Hate Girls" comes with a link to download "Sleeping With The Enemy" for FREE!!

...Produced by Don Dixon, “I Hate Girls” is a direct shot of pure melodic guitar pop. Giblin borrows ideas and sounds from classic artists from the past few decades...but injects his tunes with his own unique point of view...and he's got a great voice for pop music. “Girls” spins like a non-stop string of hit singles (hit singles that you have never heard before, of course). Upbeat, positive cuts include "All The Same," "I Hate Girls," "Half," and "Needle in a Haystack." Catchy peppy pop.
