I don't know where these songs come from. Some stem from stories I heard a while back, and others come from stories I made up. Some time ago I decided to pursue other things outside of being in bands, but still had the need to write and record music. And I wanted to make a record with the people I really trusted; my roommates, my friends from college. I knew that if you want to go out and make music, go out and make music.
I wanted to recreate music from a lot of influences from the 60's and old garages and old movies and all of those things filtered through my mind. Brett and I especially liked That Thing You Do and the Enchantment Under the Sea dance from Back to the Future.
Thanks to all of the people who helped make this record possible, Brooke, my family, my friends, Brett, Jas, Danny, Peter, Sean, Frenchie, Alex, all of the bands I've played with, all the people I've ever made music with, and all of those who have ever listened.
Special Thanks to Michael Paul Smith, who was very encouraging through out the project, and did a staggering amount of work to create the cover art. His work is amazing. Please go check it out at www.visitelginpark.com
If you like this music, please go listen to The Sonics, Nick Waterhouse, Allah-Las, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Wes Montgomery, and The Zombies. Those, among others, were huge influences on me.
