Take a Bath w/ the Buzzman

by Joe Buzzelli

Joe Buzzelli's music walks the line between logic and insanity. His musical personality has two faces. On the right, there is his sweet and sentimental style. Songs like "Family Tree", "Some Things" and "Itty Bitty" soothe the listeners' ears.

Album Notes
The only song of mine played on the radio is from “Take a Bath W/ the Buzzman”. “Family Tree” was played one night at the end of WNCW’s Local Color, a radio show for western North Carolina. When later meet the DJ and an on air show with another band, she said she played my song because she like it. She also said she waited until the end of the show to play my song was because she didn’t want to lose listeners! What do you say to that? “Thanks???” That, I guess you can say, is my style. People who like my music are embarrassed to play it for anyone else. It’s true though. When I drive around listening to new mixes of songs, I turn my volume down because I’m embarrassed of my own music even though I love it whole-heartedly.

I recorded, “Take a Bath W/ the Buzzman” while graduating from UNC-Asheville. I studied jazz drumming and my grades began to dwindle as I left school because I was gigging instead of doing my homework. My last semester I earned an “F” in Health and Wellness and a “U” in Jogging. On my out, my own alma mater gave me a “FU”! Can you believe that?

“Take a Bath W/ the Buzzman” sounds like my grade from “creative writing”. This class really p*ssed me off. I got a D because I did not follow the guidelines presented in the class. By definition doesn’t creative writing resist formulaic creation? I wrote ten pages of stream of consciousness dribble and handed that in for a “D”. I deserved it “D” and was proud of it. I stood up to convention and paid the price.

This is what “Take a Bath W/ the Buzzman” is. It’s my “D” paper that I’m proud of. There are really only one or three songs that could even be confused as approachable. For the most part this record is an “F*CK Y**” to the establishment of music education. This “FU” my college gave to me gets reciprocated and for this reason I can’t help but appreciate what “the system” did for me. In going through it, I almost lost my love for music. But now being done with the ordeal of musical education, I know have the chance to rebel against what it preached to me and I have the tools it taught me to take it down.

I know this all makes no difference though. This record has been available for over a year and I’ve sold two copies and one single on iTunes.
