A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THIS ALBUM:

I’ve been making albums since 1986.

In that time I’ve released:

 

1 Single

12 Ep’s (Extended Play Singles)

32 Full-Length Albums

and 

11 Live Albums with my dear dead friend, Tim Ellis.

 

Is that a lot? I don’t know. It’s just what I do.

Is the work good? I don’t know. That’s up to you.

 

I’m a natural big mouth. 

So it seems I always have something to say (too much probably) about every record I release.

I do my best to include some little descriptive offering to go along with the work in order to help you, Lovely Listener, understand where my head was at when I made the record.

 

Well, regarding Doll House…I have absolutely nothing to say. I can’t think of a damn thing. 

Stymied.

Maybe it’s because Doll House and it’s companion piece, the EP Hemlock (released a few months ago) are hands down the two most personal albums I’ve ever done.

I’ll say this: the two albums go together; Hemlock being the emotional aftermath of Doll House, even though the EP was released beforehand.

Is that starting to get confusing? Maybe so.

Perhaps that’s why in the case of Doll House, it may be best to just let the music do the talking.

Thank you for listening.

I hope you enjoy it.

Truly I do.
