ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
President Gas is a band exploring the limits of "three chords and the truth" - on the elusive search for the perfect song, that’s been our tagline for the last twenty or so years since we formed the band in about 1997 (we’re not quite sure of the exact birth date).

Twenty-two years. Not the Rolling Stones by any means but still a pretty good stretch. Sadly, we also haven’t sold as many albums as The Stones, nor sold out as many stadium tours but we have managed to play and record and hangout as musicians.

Part of the magic of buying a new LP used to be perusing the record sleeve and, hopefully, liner notes. Eagerly devouring the contents – who played on it, what instruments they used, who wrote the songs – and of course the lyrics themselves often rendered in their entirety. This provided a whole other layer of enjoyment in addition to the actual listening experience. These notes are perhaps an extended version of the old school liner notes of our youth.

Many people might envision a recording session as a bunch of musicians in a recording studio, playing songs together with an engineer or producer on the other side of a glass window moving faders and tweaking knobs to capture the sound and performance. The digital revolution of the last twenty years has changed everything: recording, mastering distribution, marketing, purchasing, listening and of course artist remuneration .

This digital revolution has created enormous opportunities for musicians to be able to record and release their material to the world without the need for an intermediary like a record label to bankroll the eye watering costs involved with recording and distributing physical CD’s or records. So, the playing field is far more level than it has ever been and old excuses no longer hold. The meritocracy of the digital music era means there’s no blaming the tin ears of the record company, or that radio refuses to play “music like ours”, or the lack of access to a global audience. Of course, with every musician on the planet releasing their own records it’s now way harder to break through the noise (i.e. noise being everyone else’s band).

Today most musicians have access to not four, not eight, not twenty-four, but virtually an unlimited number of tracks on their laptop, iPad or device of choice. They can dial a Marshall amp simulator up to eleven in the silent privacy of their own headphones, download a digital version of a classic analog synth for an authentic eighties sound, or cut and paste sound files and collaborate with other people via the web – it's so easy! But with theoretically unlimited technical restrictions, the limitation becomes you, your imagination–your talent.

Our album New Dream Conspiracy was recorded in just this manner. Over a number of years, in different countries, and very rarely with the whole band in the same room at the same time. We use all kinds of technology to build a sound picture that represents the songs in our heads. But ultimately it comes down to the same raw ingredients it always has–good songs, good performances and good recording.
