Strictly Discs

A full-band album featuring aggressively memorable songs recorded in a unique way to capitalize on the energy of the live performance skills of Nick's band. This album was played entirely by ten musicians in the same room at the same time, all mixed live to 1/4" analog tape. If one person out of the ten missed a note or played the wrong part, the whole take had to be done over. This lack of a safety net gave the recordings a heightened sense of focus & purpose. Every instrument leaps off the tape with immediacy & humanity. Meanwhile, the lyrics of the songs deal w/the narrow path that people must take to do right in the world. There is fear all around; fear of being different, fear of being the same-& in the middle is the narrow way, a small path that is hard to stay on, but which leads to very good things.
