There aren't many albums made in my lifetime that play quite as well front to back as The Lemonheads' 1992 record It's A Shame About Ray. There aren't really any songs to skip over, ever. Listening to Dando fight with drug addiction and put it in such seemingly happy pop song terms opened my eyes to where you could go with juxtaposition in songwriting. I've always wanted to take a stab at covering an Evan Dando song, so I gave it the old college rock try with "Rudderless". I think I did the song a bit of justice. Lemme know what you think.
Recorded and mixed on Logic in a basement in Seattle, Washington. Everything performed by Greg Franklin/The Royal Firecrackers. No drum machines or tube amplifiers were harmed in the making of this recording.
