The Shootist

A polychromatic swirl of Steve McQueen, Oscar Wilde, Captain Beefheart, Neil Young, Barry White, Woody Allen and Hank Mudbone, The Shootist conjures a joyful blend of sparkling hopelessness wrapped around the impotent dream that high school never happened

Album Notes
The Shootist, a historical retrospective:

The Early Days

The son of a future suicide and professional motorcycle racer, (his mother wished to not be mentioned) The Shootist was born under the sand in a basement flat into the Baja California community of Bahia de Los Angeles. Having had sufficient years chasing tin cans and wild dogs into the desert, the young Shootist decided to build his own motorcycle from spare parts strewn over the beaches and dumps of Baja. Riding directly north through the desert, he was forced to interact with human creatures from every layer, street urchin to suit, and deduced through the careful analysis of these confrontations that all people are exactly the same - shivering bug eyed and scared, calloused and needy, clamoring for your attention in special multi-colored clothing.

Shootist Music Was Born

Pawnshops and liquor stores were patronized as The Shootist wrote and recorded 12 songs in his shag carpet lined habitat, playing all the instruments (and dazzling the neighborhood transients).

When he listened to what he had done, he was pleased.

The Deal

There was no bidding war. Viewfinder Record's "Cash" McCanley happened past the casa de Shootist one evening and heard the strains of true misanthropic joy, a pathological blend of decadence and innocence, the sound of a little boy wandering off. A knock on the garage and a shifty handshake later, the deal was done; enjoy!
