Gravity Really Brings Me Down (LP, 1998)

Posted on: 3/17/1998

In 1998, at the urging of Chris D. Lee, I wrote and recorded a series of EPs that eventually became a science fiction concept album examining the trials and tribulations of a visitor from Saturn on Earth. The album title plays on the song title, “Poverty Really Brings Me Down,” by the great Kansas City band, Sin City Disciples. Lyric sheet (PDF)
