ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Even the album title, "I Love You to Death" captures the mood and spirit of this very fine work by Yortoise of Venice, California. It really isn't fair to force these guys to place labels like "Alternative" or "Rock" or "Pop Rock" on their music. The influences come at you from every direction. Finely crafted by tunesmith John Would, a song like "I Buried That Girl in the Hole in the Back of My Head" will creep into your consciousness and take firm root. On Weirdo Magnet, you come to the understanding that Mr. Would has had some unpleasant encounters with other members of our species. Obviously these guys have had some run ins with the law, just listen to Ossify Me. Hell, these guys even borrow heavily from Romeo Void (without the sax or the female vocal) on The Art of Standing Still. And speaking of Art, that's what this album is. It grows on you and then grows in you. How can that be bad?

Love to Love you to death!
John Would is a tremendous talent - one of the most undeservedly unknown musical minds anywhere! On this record he proves his chops while gettin' in digs at posers and ex's all with style! Melodic, Alterna-chewing-gum-with-absinthe underneath, every song on this record will get into your head - you'll have to choose which melody to have stuck on the tip of your tongue all day! My money goes to "So Far Gone" ... Classic!

i can't hear these songs enough,they creep into yer pysche
& make themselves at home.great guitar work that is so
densely layered that it takes months to find it all,not

drum work.get this cd anyway you can!
