As the sleeve notes say, "just because these artists were going for mainstream acceptance doesn't mean they weren't also trying to achieve HEAVYOSITY in their own, artistic way. Just remember, it's a nugget if you dug it. So, let's go!
The Glass Family - House Of Glass
"The House Of Glass, man, is, like, self-explanatory - the opening theme. It's a story about all of us, the mystery of us, and our adventures for a year and a half"
bassist/keyboardist David Capilouto, from a promotional piece titled "David's Rap".
Thanks, Dave! What a great song...
The Next Exit - Break Away
Love the tremolo effect on the vocals! From the sleeve notes: "Sadly, no one involved in the making of this record can remember exactly who The Next Exit were"...
The Association - Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies
The image at the top of this post is from a bizarre traffic-calming scheme instigated by Derby City Council. Strangely, whenever I see one if these signs, I want to drive into it... NOT, I assume, the desired effect.
