Hi everyone. I know it's been a really long time. Like everyone, we at Sublamental have been dealing with the fallout of Covid, and it is sometimes hard to think straight. Up is now down and down is up. The world has been turned on its head, and unless you are very wealthy you will be feeling the implications of a collapsing economy wherever you are.
So let's get up to speed here:
Todd Brunner has reached into his past and pulled out 10 songs from an archive of undeveloped and almost forgotten material. Then he recorded these songs, most for the first time, during the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown of 2020, treating the songs as though they were contemporary compositions and arranging accordingly. Because of the latter, this release can be looked at as the follow up to 2019's Cloud Control, despite its most recent composition being 18 years old!
From the sequestered safety of your homes, it might appear that things at Sublamental have been quiet for some time. You would certainly be forgiven for thinking that all of us, myself particularly, have succumbed to COVID-19 and left this mortal plane in fits of coughing and cursing our respective "governments" for gross incompetence. But you would be wrong.
So the other night I was in the pub with Aubergina, Todd Brunner and Rupert von Nutwood and I recorded part of our conversation on my phone because I thought we were saying some brilliant and hilarious stuff. Not surprisingly, said stuff was neither brilliant nor hilarious when listened to sober the next day.
