OFF PUDDING is proof positive that with enough coffee & marijuana...anything seems possible. even being a career musician in cleveland ohio. don't believe it? thats cool XE LA 216 never needed any approval. this list of tunes is exactly the greetings from obscurity you needed. off color , obnoxiously unapologetic , & extends a helping finger to anyone in the audience that calls for FREE BIRD. this bird... you most definitely can't change. a protest against the WAR on FREE THINKING. ART ROCK & SOUL MUSIC littered with the spice of country blues, the spirit of the caribbean sound & gypsy jazz psychedelia. fuzing trip hop with ole' primetime T.V
. & sci-fi theme music. samples of drunken friends & foibles. covers of songs that ascap bmi could come sue this broke ass... for the nothing they left our local small biz folk to pay us with. this is a farewell to any hope for the music industry. as the craft of the artist lives on fervent and pissed. this album is a weapon without armor. so consider this a warning. SOME OF THE VIEWs EXPRESSED ON THE RECORD MY BE FOUND UNSUITABLE FOR SOME MEMBERS OF THE LISTENING AUDIENCE. LISTENER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.........that said. kick back , smoke a fat.....download the ALbum ...FOR FREE....then....BURN IT AND PASS IT. the proof is in the pudding. THE OFF PUDDING.
