Bandcamp leaves me a section where I can tell you about this album.
There's not a great deal to tell you, except these are songs that I wrote, and then recorded. I think it's also important to tell you not to expect a political punk album full of protest songs. Aside from "JSA (Dolescum)", I'm not interested in sharing my political ideas in song form.
Instead, I prefer to tell stories with my songs, and this EP has the stories of two characters. I hope you enjoy these bleak tales. Maybe their stories are over, and maybe they aren't...
I look forward to sharing more stories in the future, but in the meantime I'd like to thank a whole shitload of people.
Thanks to :
Mum and Dad, for creating me. Ryan Mulholland for inventing the character of Sonny Gritts with me over MSN Messenger, many moons ago. Mary Agnes for being AWESOME. Rob Collins of www.TinGuitar.com
