Before there was Splashdown

There was sirensong. Had some inquiries recently about these recordings, so 25+ years later, here they are. Michelle Poppleton sang, I played guitar, Paul Zutrau played bass, Kasson played keys, and Jim Maguire played drums. Lovely cover art by Stoltze Design.

Some thoughts after hearing it with different ears today:

– Somehow, it’s both overproduced and underproduced at the same time. So that’s a kind of achievement!

– I mainly recall fussing over every note and driving everybody crazy.

– Splashdown listeners will find a number of what I’ll call “Easter eggs”.

– As soon as I heard Portishead’s “Dummy,” I knew I had to start over. Hence, Splashdown.
