How do you record an album anyway? Maybe it’s more of an argument than a collaboration. Nothing essential happens in the absence of noise. (That’s not just me saying that, ask the former head of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.) Music is a simulacrum of murder. (Attali again.)

So one morning(!) we pulled together The Legend! and the Shady Ladies for a quick session in the garage. A few hours later we had a nice little pile of recordings. What is the sound of disagreement anyway? In Rich Jensen‘s view of utopia there’d be plenty of room for people to hate each other’s guts. That’s a second-hand paraphrase, OK Rich, if I’ve blown it, don’t hate me! The gift economy! Utopia! Bring Something to the Table!!!
