I first saw the LOVESORES at an Elks Lodge in S.E. Portland Oregon.They were playing with two of my favorite bands in PDX, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. & The RANSOM(❤). After they played, and impressed I was, I went up to Scott Drake and said "Why you gotta be such an ASSHOLE,dude?" And the response i got was EXACTIY WHAT i WANTED......"Bitch...FUCK YOU!!!"(Total fabrication)
I truly fell in LOVE with the LOVESORES right after the first song! It was a beautiful mash of the Damned,the Dead Boy's and Little Richard(I know...oxymoron🙄) So I dedicated myself to convince them that I,and only I....knew what they should sound like! (Please be listening to the album while you read this...I'll wait...) So I went and started running sound for them,for FREE no less! and started slowly to seduce each member to let ME produce the album. Scott was easy,I placated to his well deserved ego and he melted like butter. Alex was just as easy,I spoke of bad,obscure punk bands and he said "Dude,what the fuck are you talking about?" Adam was a TOTAL slut!! i just complemented his obvious GREAT taste in shoes. Eric had a love for Lucifer, bringer of Light and Knowledge as do i,so that was like butter as well. Saul was a tougher nut to crack.The man is a TRUE artisan. Have you ever seen the guitars the mofo makes? ABSOLUTELY WORKS OF ART!!!.(I'm buttering him up for a 12 string,baritone guitar...SHHHH!) and he is not hearing my bullshit.Yet he came around due to ALL the hot females that came up to him after the gigs and said"I want you to use those fingers on ME!"
Let me tell you something, I'm an asshole and I don"t give a FUCK! At the same time I wish for EVERY human on this planet to realize that YOU are god! YOU give YOURSELF freedom. Not a book or a government! So please,with all do respect,let this album be a soundtrack to YOU realizing"I'm part of the SOLUTION! Not part of thee MOTHAHFUCKIN PROBLEM!"
May you find peace inner peace with the Gods of Ancient Grease...
