A fictional narrative album about god and the devil, set in a spooky small town. (We are not Christians or Satanists. This is a made up story.) Songs alternate between the perspective of two different characters:
A twenty-four year old minister, assigned on an interim basis to parishes known by church officials to be straying from the righteous path of Jesus Christ.
A wanderer who fled his childhood home in Moss Bluff ten years ago to seek honest work in the cities of the North. He now returns at twenty-five to visit his dying father.
released 15 September 2013
Wyndham Maxwell: piano, keyboards, vocals, drums, bass. Pat “the bunny”: acoustic guitar, electric guitar, vocals, drums, bass. Lane Douthit: foreman. Thomas Pollard: silent partner.
All songs were written and recorded by Pat and Wyndham in a week's time, during the heady summer days of August 2013. Were we not so young then, so foolish―and yet shining!, with a brilliance since lost to wiser years and better judgement? Released September 2013 by Savage Wasteland Music Collective.
