ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bruce Lash spent his formative years listening to British Invasion pop music while studying piano and playing guitar. In 1970, he was particularly struck by Paul McCartney's first solo album, a home DYI project in which Mr. McCartney played and sang all of the parts himself, and Bruce decided that this may be a good direction for him to pursue as well. He was similarly inspired by Nick Drake who, after a couple of live performances, decided to leave the stage to concentrate on studio recordings.

Many years passed.

Bruce found himself happily employed at a prominent commercial post production house in Chicago, mixing TV and radio commercials. Encouraged by his employers, he worked on recordings of his own music during his off hours, playing and singing each part himself, much as Mr. McCartney had done in the early '70s.

Most of this was solitary work. He did, however, make some music with friends, including producer Scott Greiner with whom he recorded a variety of strange covers songs and originals. With Ken Zawacki, he started the pychedelic pop duo, the Virgineers, and recorded a critically acclaimed CD (a second Virgineers CD is still rumored to be in the works). With singer Maura Corey, he created Prozak for Lovers. "Lithium", from Prozak for Lovers II, appears in the Christmas 2008 20th Century Fox Release, "Marley & Me", starring Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson.

Big Pictures is Bruce at his solitary best: solid songwriting that conjures scenes of flooded river towns, fatherless children and lost loved ones; failed armed robbery attempts and living in the shadows on the outside of life. Each part played and sang by Lash, himself.

From the emotionally raw confession, "My Room", to the whimsical dreamspeak of "All the Little Fishies", Big Pictures will paint indelible sounds pictures in your mind.

About d@mn time!
A long, long time fan of the Prozak's and Bruce here and I've hoped to see an original cd for about 6 years. WELL worth the wait, the collection is more than I could have ever imagined. Thank you, thank you! P.S. Please don't make us wait as long for another?! ;)
