Album Notes
"Everything exists in relation to everything else. There is a balance that is achieved of its own accord. We may upset this balance temporarily, but the system eventually will settle into a new equilibrium--albeit one not necessarily to our liking. What matters is not so much where we weigh-in on the important questions, but that we bother to ask them in the first place. What really lies in the balance is our hope for the future and our faith in the past, both of which extend from the fulcrum that is now. Which way do you lean? "-- Joe Strell

A longtime member of the alternative music scene and no stranger to independent record labels, Joe Strell is yet another alumni of the new wave / art rock band Ack-Ack, whose members included Lynn Canfield (Area, Moon Seven Times, Shot Gun Wedding), Henry Frayne (Area, Moon Seven Times, Lanterna), and Brendan Gamble (Sylvia Darling, Poster Children, Stark, Moon Seven Times, Shotgun Wedding), as well as the avant garde masters Tim Stephens and Brian Reedy (Lonely Trailer). In addition to his work on Split Heavens, a studio project with a number of releases on independent labels, and Sylvia Darling, his collaboration with Brendan Gamble, Strell has worked with many of his former alumni on their respective musical efforts over the years.
