Notes

Chrome cassette featuring the full-length album and color artwork. Limited to 100 copies.

After releasing two brilliant piano-based albums on Jagjaguwar Records, Parker Paul released a strange third album, filled with crazy synth sounds and drum machines. It wasn't in print for long, so Scioto Records has taken the opportunity to remaster the album and offer it up as a digital download and a limited edition cassette (appropriate since this album draws heavily on 80s pop influences). Parker Paul's songs are little insights into life as we know it, touching on various aspects of American society.

“So You Really Want to See Something Really Sick?” contains a generous portion of “Something Sick” by the excellent Charlottesville band Miracle Penny.
The caterwauling in the middle of “Piece of You” was no one but Jeff Melkerson of The Counselors.
