Racecar and I have known each other for quite some time now. Over the years, we’ve performed together, toured together and recorded a number of songs together. One of these songs, Langston Bukowski, appeared on The Ritz album The Night of Day in 2008. It spoke to the dichotomy between an urge for social change, and a tendency towards an almost nihilistic abuse of alcohol and other substances that we both felt was present in our lyrics. The song garnered such a positive response from fans, that we eventually made a video for it and began work on an entire album together as Langston Bukowski. This album is the result of those efforts. As reflected in the title, the songs were written and recorded in between tours in the cities of Chicago and Los Angeles, the respective homes of Racecar and I during those years. We recruited a handful of our friends to help us with the project including producers Earmint, Rel of The Ritz and Racecar’s partner in Modill, K-Kruz, who also recorded, mixed and mastered the album. We all hope you have as much fun listening to these songs as we had making them.
