Songs From The Boats: AVAILABLE NOW. Free if you have no conscience. But there are vinyl and CD versions for decent folk. We discuss the cover. Shortest. Rant. Ever.
Roger CortonCongratulations. I’m looking forwad to some vinyl.
RCOh don’t be that way. The cover looks fantastic. I wanted to get the LP for that alone.
JCHYeah. It’s a great shot. Ya know I never thought I’d find any art that would say what I wanted.
RCIt’s not a common idea. So the thing looks like a skeleton, right?
JCHRight. We’d see skeletons like that occasionally when I was a kid.
RCWhat does that have to do with the theme? Is the story really that depressing?
JCHI think it had to feel that torn apart. You know what I wanted? I wanted the tone to feel like a tornado had gone through the village. It’s not literal. But you know, man. When you lose a job. Someone dies. Some other catastrophe. That’s what it feels like.
JCHExactly. Man, I totally forgot about that. Good one. Am I burnt or what!
RCI know you are, brother. I’m glad it’s finally done.
JCHSo we can get back to some real music, right?
RCWell, of course. (laughs)
JCHUh, huh. Regardless. Thanks, man. Couldn’t have done it without you.
