This isn't just a record but music, a small book and a painting project. There were a number of things that inspired me to think about doing this but the obstacle (to me) was thinking "but I have nothing written." Then I realized I DID and it was a collection of writings that I had tentatively titled Coyote in the Graveyard--it wasn't short stories, it wasn't essays, it wasn't the bones of a novel. It was just a bunch of disconnected but related writings. It was the sort of thing I very rarely write.
And it sort of begs to be turned into songs in some cases.
As I thought on this record I decided that I wanted it to be more like the first two I did (with some exceptions). I need to keep myself engaged so...TWO things I decided but haven't told anyone yet.
The first is that I plan to play ALL the guitars on this record. On Blisters they are all William Tucker (why the HELL would I play if he was playing). On the two projects I did after that I played but a lot of the guitars were handled by Greg Lucas on the Illegalteenagebikini I Am Not Job record and by Tim Larson on The Exterminating Angel. Both far better guitarists than ME but I need to do it myself.
The second thing is that, unlike my last two LPs I think this one will be more like the first two--long! I am going to try to make this 20 songs or in the neighborhood.
Also...asking around for some special guests for this LP. More on that soon.
