I did not create this body

Mike Adams at his honest weight.

Last year I spent about two weeks (over the course of a month or so) recording a new solo record. The idea was to write and record an album's worth of material in a short amount of time using some new ideas, as well as some old ideas I had lying around gathering dust. The other idea was "no acoustic guitar". And another idea was that I would play every instrument on the record. Then, another idea was that once I had arranged and recorded all of the songs, I'd wash my hands of it and give it to my friend Adam to do whatever the spirit led him to do as far as mixing the record went. It's taken a long time, since we had no budget and lives to tend to, but I'm happy with the results.

These two tracks are both from that record, which is coming out in the LP format sometime later this year on Flannelgraph Records.
