ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Meet Dick Drake, an overeducated, middle-aged historian and political scientist living in a remote shack in western Montana. Banished by academia, he holds a grudge against society and its inequities. Abandoned by his long-suffering wife, he spends his days studying environmentalist tracts and selling fresh flowers from the back of a pickup truck along the lonesome state highways. Bundled up next to his wood stove during a blizzard, he dreams of driving a sleek Lincoln Continental through the deserted streets of an ancient city. Rolling to a stop at a glowing, desolate intersection, he revs the car’s engine… and everything changes.

From the Dylanesque “In Your Sunday Colors” to the Crazy Horse-inflected “Off Grid on Target” to the mock-poppy “Spike the Tree,” Lincoln Signal follows a man pushed to his internal outskirts. Beat by beat, he comes unglued — and fights to put the pieces back together.

Lincoln Signal was written and produced by Mark Doyon, and mastered by Jon Astley (the Who, George Harrison, Tori Amos). A blend of classic and new, it pays homage to the Velvet Underground, Neil Young, the Band, Brian Wilson, Marty Robbins, Captain Beefheart, and — in a fleeting moment (“Dancing with the Satellites”) — KC and the Sunshine Band.
