Album Notes
"1369 Lights" is the new album from soul rocker Bryan Thomas.

Its title track takes inspiration from the prologue to Ralph Ellison's novel Invisible Man.

The album features the new band The Buggy Jive, so it's a little louder and more electrified than Bryan's previous efforts.

BRYAN sings lead vox and plays acoustic guitar. He is a punk, clown fool.

JENNIFER plays electric guitar. They say she ain't black enough. They say she ain't white enough. They say she's too big for Schenectady. She ain't big enough.

CLEOPATRA JOANZ plays the bass guitar. Her birth certificate says "Roberta Joan Anderson" but these days even her mama calls her Cleo. The big bad low end from the big bad low end. She's 6'2" of dynamite and the hottest super agent ever.

LADY MACBETH plays snare, hi-hat, kick drum and tin can. Her drumsticks are knives and she's ready to cut ya - as long as you don't look like her Daddy. Her motto: "No toms and no Toms." Favorite drummers: Phil Rudd and Charlie Watts.

These are the songs.

1. MUSE. It's been a long time since the last record. Where has Her Radio Plastic Battle Royal Highness been hiding? Jean Luc, Julia and Jesus want to know.

2. LIGHTS. Turn to the art of the past to make sense of the present. These fragments I shore against my ruins.

3. STICKY. Zoe, age 4, cleaning her hands after a messy purple popsicle, comes up with the melody, the theme, and the beat off the top of her head: "Give me another wipe! I'm still sticky, my hands are still sticky!" Daddy races to the Telecaster and the tape recorder. Then he recalls Lady Macbeth's hand-cleaning dilemma. Turning to the text, he finds her pondering Arabia.

4. SAM. Uncle Sam rises from a grave on the hill to survey his native city of Troy. He is not amused.

5. KICK. Presidential politics in 2008 were a time of great pride, joy and hope for the nation. For about five minutes. Then it turned.

6. CITY. Zoe spends a week in New York City with Grandma. Baby sister Maya enjoys her first concert with MotherJudge and Odetta in Albany's Washington Park. Daddy ruminates.

7. MOTHERJUDGE. The Hidden City community of misfit musicians and poets and artists gets unhid every Wednesday night at Tess' Lark Tavern in the great city of Albany, New York. Meanwhile, in Delmar...

8. LIGHTS (Acoustical Deadness Mix). Back to the hole.

Delmar - acoustic soul rock 'n roll capital of the world
A hidden treasure of the Capital District music scene, Bryan Thomas has created a masterpiece all by himself, er, with the help of the Buggy Jive. Good stuff.
