From Lance's original J Church website: "This came out
in conjunction with a jaunt across the Pacific. On Dying
Alone is a wasted love song, About The She
is about television in Tokyo, You Almost Feel Sad
about getting a divorce and As I Lie... about a
bike messenger getting crushed to death by a municipal bus."
The two tracks not mentioned by Lance are both covers. Not
Given Lightly was originally by Chris Knox from the New
Zealand band The Tall Dwarves and Living With The Dreaming
Body was first recorded by Poi Dog Pondering. "We
love them so much, we didn't actually ask permission" says
the sleeve. It adds "About as close to a double album as we
can get right now".
The first three songs are on the lime-green (almost luminous) vinyl,
the last four are on the pale blue. Reed drummed on everything except
the title track.
