I've recorded several of my favourite songs, and to give the album an unexpected twist, I also included a few that never had any obvious connection to the rock/metal scene.
Naturally, I have also made sure to include a few great rock classics. The basic idea for this album was to choose some songs that meant something special to me when I was younger.
That is why the variety of songs include everything from experimental pop of the 80's and 70's American west coast music, to more classic heavier rock. This album is all about good songs and to record something enjoyable, making versions that are different, but at the same time a homage to the original artists. Music has many faces and expressions, and greatness lies within the song and it's performer, beyond style and category. Also, when you've been around for as long as I have now, it's liberating to go "off track" and try something different.
That said, my heart lies in rock music, but through the years I couldn't help thinking about how some great songs would sound if I tried to give them a certain "Jornish" flavour.
In the process I've had a list of 40-50 songs, but had to cut down to 12 tracks, which means I will probably have to do another album like this sometime in the future.
Thinking about all the great songs that was ruled out, I already feel there are some unfinished business there, but we'll see what life brings. I usually prefer to work on my own songs, and when we started recording I thought it wouldn't be too difficult or time consuming to make this album, but man was I wrong! Maybe it's the greatness in the songs I chose that made me realize how good the original recordings are, and that people often take it too lightly when talking about recording other peoples work.
We've tried our best to make the songs our own, and when listening back now, I feel we've achieved just that. Hope you'll like the album.
