This is my first album in the singer songwriter medium. It's a narrated story with songs, quite dirty and expicit. In a nutshell, it's about a guy who wants to get laid and nothing work until he gives up and then... Other than working as a cheesemonger, he doubles as a detective, frequents The Lesbian Coffee Shop where he's hired by the hairy manageresss to solve a case. The tone is very much along the lines of Frank Zappa, Kinky Friedman, and Tom Waitts. The music shifts from jazz to rock to atonal wierd stuff. I have perfomed the tracks myself with aunique set up that consists of keyboard (left hand), bass pedal-board (left foot), bass-drum (right foot) and snare durm and cymbals (right hand) plus vocals, all done simultaneousely; this sort of on-man band was inspired by drummer Kenwood Dennard many years ago when I saw him palying with Wayne Shorter.I used Martina Vior on guitar for two of the tracks, still done in one take.
