about

this track exists on many levels to me.

First of all, it started with the bass riff on my synthesizer. Then I added the electronic drums. I then transposed the bass riff onto my guitar and wrote the guitar part. The words came to me in about two seconds. It's actually kind of like Pharrell Williams first solo album to me lyrically, and musically. Lap Dance etc

second of all, the title is a reference to those AMAZING songs that Brad Nowell created of himself and a 4track recorder. Those lo fi fat 808 songs like Ruca and many others. I was always very inspried by the juxtaposition of what he was doing htere and the title is an homage to him. And bringing what those were back to the forefront.

CRACK HOUSE BALLADS

lyrics

rock it iike a rocketship
we can make it quick.
Call it hillbilly disco,
it's whatever I create.

The profits of a prophet they
can make me sick
good fish, bad sea
But I'm still a bad fish

I've got the Crack House Ballad Blues
I've got the crackhouse ballad blues
Ive got the crackhouse ballad blues

ride the horse, or ride the whores
you write the script and ill write the score
loca manana until I recite these lines
all I have is this connection to cloud 9

is the pen connected to God?
is that where these thoughts come from?
I dont care its just a song
that's the opposite of where I come from

I've got the Crack House Ballad Blues
I've got the crackhouse ballad blues
Ive got the crackhouse ballad blues
