I suppose it would be safe to say that my musical output is really an extension of my personality. I will admit that I have a hard time expressing myself through the various social media outlets available in the universe. I feel more comfortable releasing records and making zines than I do maintaining a strong social media presence.
I’ve released a good number of solo records. However, many of them can’t be heard online or even really tracked down that easily. My real intention is to extend my own self-worth in a mutated physical art form that is more of a buried treasure than a “google-able” commodity. I’m sure eventually, some of this stuff will end up digitized. I suppose that’s the real the purpose of this blog.
Anyway, back to my musical output. When I took my band, Adam & The Cola Kids out on tour this summer, I wanted to have something other than records to sell. I wanted something that spoke more clearly of my weird sense of humor. And because I had a pretty healthy history with zine making, I decided to produce a sort of pamphlet or program for the tour. Something that told stories and weaved a number of narrative proclamations. A lot of it was downright ridiculous and made up for the purpose of not making much sense. But in a way, that was kind of the idea.The point was to express myself in an arena that was more conductive to free flowing thoughts. Later, some of it was edited down to tie in loosely to the music and the tour, but for the most part, it was a free for all.
What initially came out, was something pretty interesting. I got a few good chuckles out of it. I made 50 copies of the zine and sold/gave away all of them on the tour. I may print up a few more for my upcoming east coast tour, but for now, here is the digitized version for your reading enjoyment. Enjoy! ….or not. I don’t really care.
