It made my top five of the year list. Fall Demons & Constant Hitmaker are excellent as well. I love that 'dirty guitar' (apologies for my lack of music terminology) sound. Love this guy so much. Foggy Notions is breaking my piggy bank, yo.'Childish Prodigy' is a peach of a record.
Best blurb ever!LIE INS
Michael (songs, guitars), Kid Lovebeach (drums, art) and F-Man (producer, 4-track, tape hiss). Lie Ins work schedule: 7.00: Exchange pleasantries, discuss new Karl Blau, set up 4-track and microphones. 7.30: Jam new song. 7.45: Commence recording drums. 8.15: Finish recording drums. 8:20: Lovebeach dispensed to shop to buy chocolate and tea. Michael is not allowed to do this because he just buys "culchie bars" like Star Bars and Wispas. 8:25: Commence recording acoustic guitar. 8:30: Lovebeach returns with rations. Fights ensue over peanut kit kat. 8:45: Second take of acoustic guitar because first one was balls, as a result of fight over chocolate. 9:00: F-Man happy with guitar sounds. Does bounce or some other technical wizardry (it's all very mysterious, secrets of the trade and all that). 9:05: Cigarettes for Lovebeach. Discussions about things like "gated reverb on snares." Anything to avoid the inevitable guitar overdubs. 9:10: Brian Eno's cards whipped out. Advice not taken as there is no cat in the studio, or any strychnine for that matter. 9:11: Commence recording guitar overdub. 9:20: Another bounce. (I guess.) F-man mentions that Paul McCartney always reserved one track for bass. There is no bass in Lie Ins. 9:25: Commence recording vocals. 9:35: Restart vocals, as Michael has been accidentally been singing a Billy Joel song. 9:45: Vocals finished. Slagging. Pack up gear. Eat last bit of chocolate. 10:00: Lock up.
