ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"I've never approached making my demos like a lot of Nashville guys", claims Supe duJour, a.k.a. Michael Granda. "Good enough is not good enough. I've always recorded my songs to sound like records. I tell the musicians to just play their asses off and not play it safe". This is evident on 'Same Shift, Different Day', Supe's latest effort and first batch of new material since 1999's, 'Smartest Man in the World'. (2002's 'Pasta Man' was a live recording of his greatest hits).

This disc is the result of two, seperate, five-song sessions, conducted in 2004. One, was with long-time friend and Ozark Mtn. Daredevil partner, Larry Lee. "Larry and I hadn't been in the studio together for some time", Supe says. "When he offered his, I jumped at the chance. I had a batch of songs. He twiddled knobs. Two of the songs from this session (Side 1) are written with veteran, Nashville song writers, Tim Carroll (Same Shift, Different Day) and Duane Jarvis (So Far, So Good). Then, Larry and I decided to cut "Take Me Back Down to the River", a song we had played decades ago and was written by Daredevil compadre, Steve Canaday. We cut it, not only because we liked the tune, but to pay tribute to Steve".

The second, five-songer (Side 2) is alongside songwriting partner, Trent Summar. "He and I had written many of the songs for his New Row Mob records", Supe recalls. "But, we still had quite a few in the can. We picked five and went into Mike Webb's studio. They're a little sillier than the songs we chose for the Mob. But, we kept our 'hillbillies on whiskey and weed' approach. The band was terrific".

Consisting of veteran drummer, Paul Griffith (Allison Moorer), guitar slinger, Bob Britt (Dixie Chicks), keyboardist, Mike Webb (Mark Germino) and pedal steel player, Mike Daly (Hank Williams, Jr.), five raucous tunes went up in a cloud of rock-n-roll smoke. Trent recalls, "Supe and I wrote 'Pigs, Cows, Chicken Feed & Beer' on the morning we learned Joey Ramone had died. We even included a 'Hey, Ho, Let's Go' chorus as a tribute.

The band assembled for Larry's session is another fine blend of musicianship and friendship. Once again, Paul Griffith kept tempo for a band that included old friend and pedal steel legend, Buddy Cage (New Riders of The Purple Sage), keyboard wizard, Kelly Brown (Skeletons) and guitarist, Steve Newman (Domino Kings).

This ten-song set is another fine example of the wacky, 'off-the-wall' songs Supe has become known for. The traditional 'bonus track' is, once again, Dr. Demento material.
