Yesterday Once More
Greetings once again, Lounge Organ Lizards!
I wasn’t sure what to write about for the album description this time so that is exactly what I will start off talking about. NO-THING. Back when I was learning to play the organ, I had the habit of forgetting one of the fundamental principals of music. This is that not only the sounding notes are important but the “space” or rest they are sounding in is essential and without this “pre-sense” then music could not appear as it does. All notes probably would play out all at once in an intolerable din something akin to an accordionist trapped in a pair of elevator doors. Further to this, it would also seem that both Quantum physicists and some philosophers are pointing to everything solid such as a chair or Hammond is mainly made up of space, (not to mention the internals of modern keyboards) and there is no such thing as a separate particle. This includes our human bodies. We’re all full of nothing folks. We know that the dust which builds around our computers and stereo systems is actually ours from last week’s body cells and further to that if I wasn’t named Jason or organaut or even “Franz Wunderbar” what are we prior to somebody giving us a name?
In listening to this album it is my hope that you take the opportunity to remember and enjoy the space in which the sounds emerge as well as the music itself. I would not recommend taking any abusive substances or consume anything but the ordinary mushroom soup you usually buy from your local store. However, I have featured my rendition of “Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds” to help you get spaced out safely with some periodic sound effects (rather than side effects). This one harks back to the sixties Lennon & McCartney glowing era of Lysergical music and turned out to be a collaboration with Mark Fuller (my partner and studio engineer) who very creatively added a hint of a would-be George Harrison on his Sitar and intertwined with “Stepford” Chamber Orchestra of cellos and violins to make this track more interesting. Yes, while listening one may imagine Nanette Newman gracefully gliding her bow across the strings while still wearing the Marigold rubber gloves she wore for the Fairy washing up liquid TV commercials accompanied by clicking noises from the servo components in those Fembot arms. Led eyes lighting up red in satisfaction of her endeavours.
In order to bring you back down to the physical plane, I have included several more familiar tracks with the exception of “Kemptown Blues” which is one of my own decompositions as a tribute to the suburb of Brighton where we live.
So happy listening Dudes, and if you found this description a bit tasteless then please buy all copies of this album and destroy them immediately. LOL!. Roll on Volume 5.
All tracks played on KeyB Live Organ with Roland BK-7m Accompaniment etc.
