ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ken Turetzky performs original, bad-attitude folk- and blues-based acoustic comedy at venues in and around Dallas, Texas, and occasionally in Terre Haute, Indiana. Inspired by public dismay in reaction to his first CD, Look What I Made!, Ken confidently offered the disc to radio.

Surprisingly, the strategy worked. Ken recently cracked the Sirius Satellite Radio Howard Stern/Howard 100-101 channels with an appearance on the Red Peters Show. His music is featured on the Sirius XM Raw Dog Comedy and National Lampoon Radio channels and numerous broadcast and Web outlets.

Syndicated radio host Dr. Demento calls the CD "a riot!" and has featured Ken on his Funny Five weekly countdown. TM Century Comedy Network has distributed Ken's music nationally via its weekly radio prep service. Ken's heard frequently on morning drive and college radio, and widely on the Web via the Podsafe Music Network.

Live audiences know Ken's work as well. For five years, crowds at Starbucks and many comedy clubs, crummy bars and coffee houses you've never heard of have politely endured the uptempo blues of Ken's My Fat Ass Itches and recoiled from the unromantic ballad, Her Shit Don't Stink.

Ken's seductive melodies, punctuated with his better-than-adequate guitar work and searing harmonica notes, support the clever lyrics of Today Was A Very Good Day, Don't Really Matter and If They Found Me Dead, the other sardonic songs on Look What I Made! The CD is available on iTunes and CDBaby.

As a journalist, Ken has covered the National Basketball Association for prominent print, online and broadcast outlets, and interviewed such personalities as Bill Cosby, Larry King and James Brown. Comedy music provides a welcome opportunity for Ken to promote his own gig for a change.

A fine blend of wit and talent
Mike from The Awful Show gifted me with a download of your album, and I must say, it is extraordinary. Rarely in today's bloated and saturated music-scape is there such a fine blend of wit and talent. I am still laughing.

Thanks to Tha Mike and the Awful Show cast for the birthday gift and the opportunity to hear new and obscure artists. Keep it coming, and Ken -- Make more!

Can you relate to his kind of disturbed, what I've decided just cries out to be
I'm guessing Ken Turetzky doesn't get invited to many debutante balls. From his album cover, with the little girl proudly holding up (what he claims is fake) poo, to a set of track names that promise your baser delights, we aren't looking at Dallas's upper crust here.

Even a superficially upbeat title like Today Was a Very Good Day, with its faux Cat Stevens vocals and cheery tone, delivers a message that would be out of place during National Brotherhood Week.

Turetzky's a disturbed individual, or at least he plays one on radio. Which leads to the only question that matters: can you relate to his kind of disturbed, what I've decided just cries out to be called Turetzky's Syndrome? Much as I hate to admit it, I certainly can.

Schnauzer Logic

Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Turetzky
Not a law firm, but a lineage of great composers with saliva-sapping last names leading up to the brilliant first release of singer/songwriter Ken Turetzky, "Look What I Made!"

And what has Ken has made? Just a mini-album of 5 songs, 3 of which have asterisks in their titles (a time-honored indication of musical and literary genius), traversing the breadth of human emotion and experience.

From "My Fat A*s Itches", a soulful lament anyone with an a*s can relate to, to "If They Found Me Dead", a soulful lament anyone with an a*s can relate to, "Look What I Made!" shines like the proverbial polished turd, squeezing out one musical nugget after the other, and featuring the Award® nominated, "Her S**t Don't Stink" (two asterisks, no waiting!)

To quote Shakespeare, "If you like this kind of thing, then this is the kind of thing you'll like!, forsooth"

"Look What I Made!" - and what did you make, Ken?

You made me think, Ken... you made me think.

And is there anything more we can ask of a comedy/music/folk album?

I think not.

Takes me back...
This sounds like the music I listened to on Dr. Demento when I was in college! Too funny. Wouldn't share it with young kids, but it's a hoot. (And yes, I would have thought it was hysterical when I was a young kid. but now I have to be the mom!)
