is shaka tron
this album or ep or however you want to call it
is the product of a years worth of work
and a years worth of just sitting around.
see, the thing is…i wrote these songs
and the majority were going to feature vocals
but i got tired of waiting around for those to be finished
so i thought i’d let these songs out of their respective cages
so that perhaps you and a friend of yours could enjoy them.
there’s no great mission statement here.
i’m not bono.
i don’t seek to change the world through my songs.
if i could make you smile, that’s good enough for me.
tea time with bono, consummation of grief and get mad
all feature a sample.
consummation of grief is obviously bukowski.
the other two i won’t disclose,
you’ll have to find those out for yourself if you’re interested.
get mad isn’t all that obscure.
this isn’t goodbye
but i will no longer have the time
to post two mixes each month.
i will make time now and then
to post them, as i seem to have
a few followers these days.
hard part’s over.
the good part is that i am also making my new ep
available for download in the next post.
i’m quite pleased with it.
as always, thank you for listening.
may your year be everything you want it to be.
