Giant Drag’s LP is about to come out02/17/2011 Curtis Cales Comments Closed
So it wasn’t the best PR move or in best interest for my career in general but I decided to stop talking about Giant Drag’s album Waking Up Is Hard To Do until something was happening. People who talk about shit but never have anything to show for it are the worst, so I put my head down and started working. I found it somewhat easy to concentrate on work with most people I’ve ever been friends with for some reason thinking I am still living in Orange County…. Nope I have been in LA since May of last year, I was just a little too psycho to tell you about it! So yeah, I am back here in LA, doing my thing, seeing what works and what doesn’t for the new me and wouldn’t you know it, Giant Drag might be living up to it’s nU grunge, bummer of a (brilliant) name and all signs point to a nice change of musical pace for me. I can’t fake it, I don’t want to. Giant Drag has felt like one big lonely abscessed tooth that needed to be pulled to make way for a colony of new, better, whiter, faster, catchier teeth to take it’s place. I know some of those characteristics don’t apply to teeth but humor me, I’ve been working like a dog with Ann Jones day in and out.
Things are getting better, I am building a new empire in Full Psycho so don’t be sad that after this long-time-coming album is released Giant Drag will be a thing of the past, instead lets look towards the future which, for once is sort of bright and not just there waiting for me under a Seattle-y hue of grey nu grunge misery. If you would like to keep up on my future musical endeavors I suggest you visit www.fullpsychorecords.com where me and my friends will be doing all sorts of cool shit like releasing more records, making videos and even making crafts! We also have a message board where we can all talk to each other and do cool shit together. Please come say hi! I’ll be finally revealing the true “Kevin Is Gay” meaning on there soon…
If you feel you have been overlooked and should be a part of the board’s Super Friends Club (like if you’ve bought me some pedal in the past or otherwise been a super friend, donated to the cause that is this record thats coming out) please tell us, we forget stuff and shit is hectic so email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can hook your ass up.
So back to this record, it’s coming out exclusively on anniehardy.bandcamp.com Tuesday, March 5th. There’s going to be a regular version and then the Deluxe Edition which I strongly suggest you buy for only $5 more, you get the “What I Know About Nothing: 2007 Acoustic Demos” also recorded and produced by Joe Cardamone, as well as the foreword he wrote, the lyrics, the special photos and Thank You list & something else I feel I’m forgetting… Oh well, it happens. Shit happens, right? This year has been the most happenin’, shitty year of my life and things are looking up for once so I bet I’m going to die soon. Maybe not though. Regardless, I really want to thank everyone who has been a fan, member, lover, hater, compadre and otherwise supporter of Giant Drag and me personally. I couldn’t have made it to this point without each and every one of you and I would hate to have to carry on without you so please, even if you think I wouldn’t notice you in your absence, I would. If you think I forgot about your grab bag, I didn’t. If you wonder if I really care or not, I do (but I’d like to one day not) because without you there is no me. Without me and Micah there is no Giant Drag but there is Annie Hardy and the Psychos and PnP… Plus you never know, everything can change in a day but this is the plan for now.
So thank you again from the bottom of my heart for your unwavering friendship and support and lets keep fighting the good fight while everyone else just talks about their lunch of Facebook.Giant Drag’s LP
