Writing A Concept Album

For a while now I've wanted to right down some of the thoughts about my old band kidikarus' one and only album. I know there will probably be about 8 of you that actually listened to the record, but for some of my close friends and bandmates, I figured they might want some insights into the record, and a jam session with 3/4 of the band last week brought back a whole slew of memories. I'll try to remember as much as I can about the recording and writing process. It's been about 5 years since the band disbanded, but I still think and miss my band almost every day.

If you want a physical copy of the album, email me at mburkholder@gmail.com and I'll try to get one to you.

Have a listen while you read. The first track is at the bottom of soundcloud (I will try to get better quality mp3s soon!)
