Album Notes
Welcome to Awkwardsville! The dots 3rd studio album is a thematic mash-up of hope, hopelessness, sex, violence, heaven, hell - and goofy abandon. "Moaner" (don't ask...) was a regional college radio hit back in '95. A candidate for a bi-polar national anthem -"Joy and Madness" - features Karin Bergquist of Over The Rhine gorgeously feathering a chorus vocal. Bittersweet "More To Life" and "Bed of Nails" speak of adult angst, and "Hell" stares war in the face... and death blinks. Google the dots' first video, "Mattress", which is still a wild-ass concert staple for the band. "When There's Rain" could have been an "East meets Midwest" Bears song and "Playing Dead" (what's IT really about?) ties a ragged bow on this collage of wonderful, misfit tunes written by 3 unique songwriters who by this time in their partnership sound like they relish their outsider status. Oh, and if you're already a fan trying to convince anyone that these Ohio boys are world class musicians you might want to point them to Awkwardsville.
