No longer for sale! Head over to pick these up on "Waving Kissyhead Vol. 2 & 1".
"Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1" is the appetizer for the Chandler Travis Philharmonic's forthcoming full-length opus, "Waving Kissyhead Vol. 2", due just in time for your holiday shopping needs, and finds the CTP in full-blown, raucous party mode -adult beverages all but mandatory!
The EP opens with "E", a bone-rattling history of the E chord from pre-historic times right up to the present, before posing the provocative question, "if your wife and your mother were drowning, which one would you save?", on the the age-old calypso classic, "Your Wife and Mother." Things take an almost thoughtful turn on "Human", as the CTP ruminates about the malevolence of the human species, before concluding, on "Make Yourself Happy", that a little do-it-yourself might be the way to go.
Just four cuts, but hopefully a short but welcome recess from reason, responsibility, and complexity of any kind. You're welcome!
