ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PJB Back in the studio. - May 15, 2011
God forbid someone buys a song they've never heard before, right!? That being said, the Pat Jordan Band took to the studio last weekend to record a single. We did "King of Wishful Thinking" by Go West. For those of you who come to our live show, it's a staple in the set that we've been playing for a long time.

We also shot some video all day and will be sharing the final product soon. Brendan Buss is the man on that. You may recall the Pat Jordan Band "Twice" teaser video. That was all him. The main objective of this thing was just to get the song, and our name out there a bit to increase traffic to the original stuff. You dig it the most.

As for the song itself, the arrangement has evolved a bit I suppose, but if I remember correctly, my friend Kainoa, who was living out of state at the time, and I had been discussing the song and different possible arrangements. The one you'll hear is the one I came up with. I think it's transposed a few keys down from the original (Ruben Studdard and I may share clothes, but I don't have the range my brother has) and it's also alot more staccato than the original.

You'll also notice in the arrangement that we added some extra time to get Simon and Brendan some solo time to shred on. This part was important to me and turns out, it was absolutely vital to the song as well and gives it some great personality. As for Rob and Josh, well, it's kind of like they put on a pair of satin underpants and smashed their balls up against a chain-link fence for 3 minutes and 30 seconds. It's filthy. Filthy good. Oh yeah, and me? I pretty much hacked away like a gorilla and sang like an angel.

Hope you enjoy.
