1 - PALMER, GEOFF -& LUCY ELLIS- - YOUR FACE IS WEIRD - (CD) 
RUMBAR


2020 is canceled, and my schedule is wide-open; it gives metime for projects to come to life. I had always loved John Prines track "In Spite of Ourselves" and wanted to do it for years, being a duet, sadly it never seemed t o fit wit h a ny other batch of songs, so the idea stayed lingering. I met Lucy at a festival Stardumb Records put together and was a fan of all her bands. I decided to ask if she wanted to sing the track with me. As I said, 2020 is canceled, and she was home, so her positive response of YES came back within minutes. That was that, and I thought "Well if she said yes to one track, why not do two and have a 45." I called my buddy Zack Sprague (who plays on my solo stuff and in The Connection with me), and within a few days we had the music recorded and sent off to London for Lucy. Stefan from Stardumb was into releasing the two tracks on wax, so we even had a record deal! We had a blast passing the masters around, doing Zoom happy hours, and talking about music. One thing led to another, and we started writingsongs and picked four more covers. It went so fast, all of asudden we had eight songs recorded and mixed. We did not know if Stardumb would want to do a full release or if Rum Bar would either, but that didnt stop us. You have to look at the good in a lousy situation. Yes, 2020 is fucked. Still, we are making the best of it, staying positive, being creative, and producing albums. Luckily for us, the underground scene is still very active in the murky waters of our current world, and la bels like Stardumb and Rum Bar keep producing and releasingremarkable records, like this one! (Oh yea, they both saidYES as well!) I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. - Geoff
